Anthony Hopkins stars as Burt Munro, a man who never let the dreams of youth fade. Set in the late 1960's, after a lifetime of perfecting his classic Indian Motorcycle, Burt sets of from the bottom of the world, Invercargill, New Zealand, to clock his bike at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. With all the odds against him, Burt puts his irrepressible kiwi spirit to the test, braving the new world on a shoestring budget. Burt's quest culminates in an unlikely conclusion and remains legendary within the motorcycle community to this day.

Anthony Hopkins just disappears into the role of Bert Monro, it's a rare actor that can to that. Bert is a very likable character, a simple elderly man from a small New Zealand town who goes to the USA to compete at the land speed record trials at Bonneville Salt Flats. He is totally unprepared for the in -your-face and sometimes bizarre social norms of America but Bert manages to bring out the best in everyone he meets without even trying. This movie is a lovely surprise to watch, even if you have no interest in motorcycles or speed records, as it is a strongly character driven story. Higly recommended for just about anyone.
