Carefully mining the potential for an underdog sports drama to uplift and inspire, this is the true story of melancholy cyclist Graeme Obree (Jonny Lee Miller). Director Douglas Mackinnon uses the lionhearted athlete's bouts of depression to generate suspense and avoid an overly formulaic ending, while Obree's friendship with a Protestant minister (Brian Cox) provides another interesting but not overplayed dimension to the narrative. Some rough language, a suicide attempt, implied lovemaking between husband and wife, brief violence and a crass scene of urination. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
