Race (2016) Plot: Jesse Owens’ quest to become the greatest track and field athlete in history thrusts him onto the world stage of the 1936 Olympics, where he faces off against Adolf Hitler’s vision of Aryan supremacy. Race 2016 Full summary » »
Race (2016) Story: In the 1930s, Jesse Owens is a young man who is the first in his family to go to college. Race 2016 Going to Ohio State to train under its track and field coach, Larry Snyder, the young African American athlete quickly impresses with his tremendous potential that suggests Olympic material. Race 2016 However, as Owens struggles both with the obligations of his life and the virulent racism against him, the question of whether America would compete at all at the 1936 Olympics in Nazi Germany is being debated vigorously. Race 2016 When the American envoy finds a compromise persuasive with the Third Reich to avert a boycott, Owens has his own moral struggle about going. Race 2016 Upon resolving that issue, Owens and his coach travel to Berlin to participate in a competition that would mark Owens as the greatest of America’s Olympians even as the German film director, Leni Riefenstahl, locks horns with her country’s Propaganda Minister, Josef Goebbels, to film the politically embarrassing fact for posterity. Race 2016 Written byKenneth Chisholm (email@example.com)
Race (2016) Synopsis: In the 1930s, a young black man, Jesse Owens (Stephen James) is running through the streets of Cleveland, Ohio. Race 2016 He runs through the slums and into a rundown neighborhood home. Race 2016 He gets to packing his bags as he is getting ready to move out of his parents’ home. Race 2016 He hunts around for his only shirt while his mom, proud of her first boy going off to college, finishes tailoring a nice suit coat for him. Race 2016 Jesse is afraid it is too expensive, but she insists and says he was meant to do great things. Race 2016 He says goodbye to his dad and gives him an envelope with $2.
In a large college stadium, a track race is going on, and things aren’t looking so great for coach Larry Snyder (Jason Sudeikis). Race 2016 Ohio State loses the meet and radio commentators are wondering if coach Snyder is concerned about his job because he hasn’t had any national wins while at Ohio State. Race 2016 Larry goes to his office on campus, upset and cranky, and his secretary comes in with his day’s appointments and files of “fresh blood” – all potential track stars and Jesse Owens is among the files.
Jesse’s next stop before getting on the bus to Ohio State is to see his girlfriend, Ruth (Shanice Banton), and their little girl. Race 2016 Ruth works at a salon and Jesse’s appearance warrants a stern look from her boss. Race 2016 Jesse says things are going to be better, and he’s going to come back and marry Ruth. Race 2016 Jesse’s friend, Dave (Eli Goree), also headed to Ohio State, tells Jesse to hurry and get on the bus. Race 2016 Jesse says goodbye and gets on the bus (in the colored section), and they are off.
At the school, Dave and Jesse are jogging on the track while Larry times him. Race 2016 After their workout, Dave and Jesse head to the locker room and are about to hit the shower when the all-white football team walks in. Race 2016 They toss around racial slurs and force Dave and Jesse to let the football team shower first. Race 2016 Jesse, not wanting to get in trouble, accepts this as his lot, though Dave is upset. Race 2016 While they are waiting, a young man tells Jesse that coach Larry wants to see him. Race 2016 Sweaty and gross, and unable to shower, Jesse throws on his clothes and heads to Larry’s office.
At the office, Larry greets him, but Jesse won’t look him in the eye. Race 2016 Jesse is also surprised when Larry invites him to sit in the chair opposite him. Race 2016 After some small talk about past victories coach, Larry asks if Jesse can work and that he’s got to work on his manners because he should be looking a man in the eye when he’s talking to them. Race 2016 Jesse says he can work, and his records should speak to that. Race 2016 Larry says records don’t mean shit because some kid will come along and take those records away from you. Race 2016 Medals are what count. Race 2016 Jesse notices a picture of an Olympic team and asks if it is indeed. Race 2016 Larry says yes, it is the Olympic track team from Paris, 1924. Race 2016 But Larry wasn’t there. Race 2016 He asks if Jesse will go to Berlin in 1936 for the Summer Olympic Games. Race 2016 Jesse wants to, and coach says that he needs commitment: when not in class Jesse is to be on the track. Race 2016 “You belong to me.”
Out on the track, the coaches are watching the “fresh blood” and coach Larry says Jesse is good. Race 2016 They time him on the 100-meter dash and, while his starting position is crap, he’s fast (9. Race 2016 something seconds). Race 2016 The coaches are impressed.
In New York City, the US Olympic Committee is having a meeting. Race 2016 They are concerned about the rumors coming out of Germany under the Nazi government and are debating whether or not to boycott the 1936 games in Berlin. Race 2016 They eventually agree to send a delegate to Berlin to assess the situation and make sure the Nazis play fair. Race 2016 They decide to send Avery Brundage (Jeremy Irons), who is somewhat reluctant but wants to move forward with the games and doesn’t put a lot of stock into the rumors about the Germans and their “Jewish problem” and racial discrimination.
Back at Ohio State, Jesse is training hard. Race 2016 In a letter back to Ruth he talks about a job he found at a fill station, and how hard it is to keep up with practice, work, and school, but he’s doing it. Race 2016 He’s sent $2 and talks about having applied for a marriage license.
Coach catches up with Jesse and is frustrated that he’s been missing practice. Race 2016 Jesse explains that he’s got to work his job to take care of his baby girl. Race 2016 Larry is surprised at the news. Race 2016 “You didn’t tell me you had a daughter.” “You didn’t ask.”
In Berlin, Avery is escorted to the stadium, currently under construction, and sees Jews being tossed from their homes, loaded onto trucks, and signs everywhere that say “Germans defend yourself” and other anti-semitic propaganda. Race 2016 At the sports club, he meets Dr. Race 2016 Joseph Goebbels (Barnaby Metschurat), a couple of other German Olympics officials, and Leni Riefenstahl (Carice van Houten). Race 2016 Ms. Race 2016 Riefenstahl was handpicked by the Fuhrer to film the proceedings at the Olympics (the first time it will have been recorded, it was a big deal). Race 2016 Avery starts in on what the Olympics would look like without American involvement, and the Nazis are very keen on appeasing the Americans. Race 2016 It isn’t a problem with facilities, but with politics. Race 2016 Avery accuses them of using the Olympics to sell their nasty ideas about Jews and non-Aryan races. Race 2016 A deal is struck, the press will be reigned in, anti-Jew signs taken down, and they’ll stop shipping people out of their homes.
Back in Ohio, Jesse goes to coach Larry’s office where Larry gives Jesse a legislative paige ID. Race 2016 The job gets $60 a month, and all Jesse has to do for the job is train. Race 2016 A win-win situation.
Jesse’s training starts in earnest, and coach starts training him to start low and improve his form and cadence. Race 2016 After practice, the team hits the showers, and the football team walks in. Race 2016 After having distracted Jesse in practice, the coach provokes them into hurling horrible insults to teach Jesse a lesson: block it out. Race 2016 He gets the message loud and clear. Race 2016 He celebrates later with some friends, all egging each other into a jumping contest. Race 2016 Jesse gets cocky and jumps over a pole but falls and hurts himself. Race 2016 Coach is upset with him, but tell him to rest for three days, and maybe he will be able to compete in Ann Arbor.
Three days later, it is the Big 10 of 1935 in Ann Arbor, MI. Race 2016 Jesse is obviously hurt but insists on competing. Race 2016 If his back doesn’t make it through the 100-yard, dash coach can pull him. Race 2016 He takes his place on the track, amidst loud boos from the racist white crowd, but he blocks it out. Race 2016 He takes first with 9.3 seconds on coach’s watch. Race 2016 The officials won’t accept the New World Record (NWR) and insist his time was 9.4. Race 2016 Coach is pissed, but Jesse shakes it off and moves on. Race 2016 He goes to do the broad jump and scopes out the track. Race 2016 He asks an official what the world record is, then asks for a handkerchief and sets it at the world record line. Race 2016 He makes the jump…. Race 2016 and sets a NWR! Next up is 200-yard dash: he sets a NWR. Race 2016 He competes in the hurdles: another NWR. Race 2016 By now the crowd is going nuts and cheering for him. Race 2016 On the drive home, he is excited about the wins. Race 2016 Coach tells him that he also set a new school record for most points earned in a meet. Race 2016 “Which cracker did I take that from?” “This cracker” coach says. Race 2016 “Well, you know what they say about records. Race 2016 Some kid will come along and snatch it away from you.” Jesse quotes back Larry’s own words.
June 25, 1935
Ohio State is competing in Los Angeles, and the guy they need to watch out for is Eulace Peacock (Shamier Anderson). Race 2016 The press is waiting for the team when the bus pulls up, and the press asks how it feels to be the world’s fastest human. Race 2016 Must feel great because Jesse smokes the competition in L.A.
Jesse, Dave, and another friend go to a jazz club after the race. Race 2016 A girl in a pink dress, Quincella, comes in. Race 2016 The guys don’t think Jesse has a chance getting her, but to their surprise, she knows who he is and approaches him first. Race 2016 She’s got trouble written all over her, but Jesse falls hard.
In Germany, Avery is following up with his requests for the Berlin Olympics. Race 2016 Things look “swell” and he pledges his support. Race 2016 He is also present with a business opportunity: he is a builder, and the Nazis want him to build the new German Embassy in Washington DC. Race 2016 It would be a huge deal, and they insist to Avery that this is not a bribe, but a securing of the best builder in America for their project. Race 2016 He points out some design problems, and appears to accept the deal.
In Nebraska, Jesse, with Quincella, receives a telegram. Race 2016 Apparently Ruth has seen that Jesse and Quincella are cuddly and close, and she’s angry and is threatening to sue Jesse. Race 2016 He is distracted at his track meet and loses to Eulace Peacock. Race 2016 Coach comes by to talk over what happened. Race 2016 Jesse is curt and in the middle of a pity party and says he was just having a bad day. Race 2016 They get talking about relationships, and Jesse asks if Larry was ever married. Race 2016 Larry says he is currently separated from his wife, and his daughter is almost grown. Race 2016 His focus was on coaching, not his family. Race 2016 Jesse says “You never told me you had a daughter.” “You never asked.” When the team loads up the bus to head back to Ohio, Quincella shows up and is getting ready to follow the team and drive Jesse back to Ohio. Race 2016 He loads her things into her car… Race 2016 and breaks up with her. Race 2016 She’s ticked, and leaves quickly. Race 2016 Jesse says he’s got some explaining to do back home.
Back at home, Jesse goes into the salon where Ruth works and apologizes. Race 2016 And proposes marriage. Race 2016 She shuts him down. Race 2016 He goes outside and waits all day in the rain for her to get off of work. Race 2016 She scolds him for missing races; he says he’d rather miss races and work at a gas station if it meant he got to spend his days with her. Race 2016 He proposes again and wants to get married that day, and this time, she agrees. Race 2016 He runs off to find someone to perform the wedding for them.
Back in New York, the US Olympic committee is there to vote. Race 2016 Jeremiah Mahoney (William Hurt) says that they need to vote against participating in the games, that a vote against participation is a vote against tyranny. Race 2016 Avery encourages everyone to vote for the dream of participating, thinking of the athletes and the chances this could ruin for them. Race 2016 In the end, the vote is close, 58 in favor of going, 56 in favor of a boycott.
In Ohio, a representative of the NAACP comes to the Owens’ home to try and talk Jesse into not going to Berlin, only because they need to show the Nazi’s that their discrimination in intolerable. Race 2016 Jesse’s father disagrees, but believes that the choice should be Jesse’s. Race 2016 Jesse asks if the representative runs. Race 2016 He doesn’t. Race 2016 Jesse explains that on the track race is the last thing that matters. Race 2016 It is just fast or slow, and in that there is freedom.
Back at the school, everyone is listening to a boxing fight, a Nazi fighter vs. Race 2016 an American fighter. Race 2016 In the end, the Nazi fighter wins. Race 2016 Coach says that at least in three week’s time they’d be beating the Nazis at the Olympics. Race 2016 Jesse says he’s not sure he’s going. Race 2016 Coach is livid and can’t understand how he would give up the chance to be a part of history. Race 2016 He says race doesn’t matter, but Jesse says he can say that because coach is white.
At the track that night coach Larry is drinking and upset. Race 2016 He stupidly decides to go for a broad jump and hurts himself.
The next morning, Jesse is on a jog when Larry catches up with him in his car. Race 2016 He gets out, using a cane, and encourages Jesse to give himself the option to go to Berlin by at least going to the Olympic Trials.
At the Olympic trials, Jesse qualifies for three events. Race 2016 At the press meet, the topic keeps veering from the sport and to the politics. Race 2016 Two of the track team are Jewish, and then there is Jesse and Dave. Race 2016 How can they participate given the discrimination abroad and at home. Race 2016 It isn’t a pretty press meet. Race 2016 Afterward, coach Larry tries to get the Olympic coaches to bring him on as an additional coach for Jesse. Race 2016 They won’t have any of it.
On the way back to his hotel, Jesse runs into Eulace Peacock. Race 2016 He tore his hamstring and is never going to run again. Race 2016 He says to go to Berlin just to stick it to Hitler. Race 2016 At the hotel, Jesse is having a hard time sleeping and wakes Ruth. Race 2016 He is worried that he will lose, and then Hitler will be right. Race 2016 She tells him to stop thinking, he’s not very good at it, and to just run. Race 2016 The next morning he packs up, gets a special locket (to keep him focused on his girl), and he takes a small lock of his daughter’s hair. Race 2016 On the boat he turns when coach Larry starts talking to him. Race 2016 He’s glad that coach is there. Race 2016 When Larry goes to leave Jesse stops him because he’s headed in the wrong direction. Race 2016 “Everyone is up there in first class.” “On my own dime? I’m in steerage with you and Dave.”
In Berlin, Ms. Race 2016 Riefenstahl is showing the Olympic committee the beginnings of her promotional movie. Race 2016 She asks for no restrictions; she wants to film every event, and she needs 46 cameras. Race 2016 Dr. Race 2016 Goebbels reminds her that these are his games. Race 2016 She reminds him that this is her film. Race 2016 Without it no one would remember the games a year from then.
In July 1936, the American team arrives in Berlin and are given the royal treatment at the Olympic Village. Race 2016 Marty and Sam wave their David’s Stars in the faces of some of the Nazi security guards, and everyone is a little surprised when there are no colored dorms or tables. Race 2016 (Aside from Jews, segregation laws against blacks and other ethnic groups apparently don’t exist in Nazi Germany or in the rest of Europe). Race 2016 Everyone sits together. Race 2016 Dave suggests that the Nazis aren’t so bad. Race 2016 Sam and Marty aren’t so sure.
Ms. Race 2016 Riefenstahl shows her finished film of the running of the torch, and Dr. Race 2016 Goebbels loves it. Race 2016 Ms. Race 2016 Riefenstahl is encouraged.
Jesse and Dave set out to train and get ready for the games, but the US team coaches are awful and racist. Race 2016 Coach Larry catches up with Jesse later and asks “Did you really tell Dean he’s not fit to train fleas on a dog?” He did. Race 2016 They are ambushed by the other coaches to try to settle the dispute. Race 2016 Dean insists on an apology. Race 2016 Jesse insists on Coach Larry or he’s not competing, hope they like singing the German national anthem. Race 2016 The relent, and Coach Larry is instigated as a coach. Race 2016 Larry says this is a twisted way to thank him; medals would be better. Race 2016 He asks Jesse about his new shoes, but Jesse says they never showed up.
Coach Larry goes looking for the shoe shop where the shoes (from London) were supposed to come from. Race 2016 He gets totally turned around (he doesn’t know any German) and ends up walking up on a group of Nazi soldiers forcing a Jewish family into a military truck. Race 2016 He’s finally able to communicate to one of the soldiers that he’s an American, has papers, is with the Olympic team, and is looking for a shoe place. Race 2016 The soldier guides him off, though Larry can’t stop looking back at the truck.
On the morning of the Olympic competitions, Larry can’t stop fussing over Jesse. Race 2016 Jesse, on the other hand, is totally cool and calm. Race 2016 They start off for the stadium, which is huge, filled with people, and has a zeppelin flying overhead. Race 2016 Everyone stands as Hitler comes into the stadium. Race 2016 Jesse gets his new shoes on, looks at the picture of his wife in the locket, and then prepares the track. Race 2016 He wins the 100-meter dash and easily gets his first gold. Race 2016 Avery congratulates him, then takes him to go meet someone special (it is custom for the hosting dignitary to do a meet and greet with gold medalists). Race 2016 He escorts Jesse through the middle of several dozen high-ranking Nazi officials. Race 2016 They meet Dr. Race 2016 Goebbel, who doesn’t even look at Jesse. Race 2016 They are informed that, in order to avoid the traffic home, Hitler had to leave early and will not be meeting Jesse. Race 2016 At least, that’s what the translator says. Race 2016 Goebbels really asks how Hitler could be expected to shake hands with “that.” Aver is livid.
The American team has a small party to unwind for the day. Race 2016 Jesse catches a glimpse of the famous broad jumper, Carl ‘Luz’ Long (David Kross). Race 2016 He’s the guy to beat in the broad jumping as he holds all of the records in Europe. Race 2016 Larry goes over the strict rules they have about broad jumping for these games, though Jesse seems a little distracted.
At the qualifying event, the next day Luz easily qualifies. Race 2016 Jesse, up next, goes to scope out the track like he did in Ann Arbor, but gets fouled when he steps over the line trying to get a good look at the rack. Race 2016 It is counted at his first attempt. Race 2016 His “second” attempt is also red flagged when he doesn’t jump at just the right moment. Race 2016 Luz, seeing this, grabs a towel and places it at the side of the jumping lane so Jesse will know where to jump from. Race 2016 Jesse qualifies on his third attempt. Race 2016 He catches up with Luz and thanks him for the help.
In the end, the broad jump comes down to Luz and Jesse. Race 2016 Luz does well, per his normal, but then Jesse passes him with a distance of 7.74 meters. Race 2016 On his second jump, Luz makes it to 7.78 meters, a new European record. Race 2016 Jesse takes his second jump: 7.94 meters! Luz goes for his third attempt, but stumbles at the last second and fouls out of the last attempt. Race 2016 The game is in the bag for Jesse; he doesn’t need the last attempt, but Luz insists he do his best. Race 2016 On his third jump, Jesse lands an 8.60-meter jump, a new Olympic record! After the medals are awarded, and anthems played, Luz suggests they take the lap of honor together. Race 2016 This is career suicide for Luz, as he goes around the track arm in arm with Jesse. Race 2016 Ms. Race 2016 Riefenstahl’s cameraman asks what Luz is doing; his career is over! She says he’s making her film.
At the end of the day, Jesse gets beers and takes them to Luz’s room. Race 2016 They sit and chat for a while. Race 2016 Jesse says Luz’s girlfriend is pretty, are their any ugly girls in Germany? Luz says yes, they just keep the ugly things hidden. Race 2016 He talks about a lot of the awful stuff the government is doing, and talks about a girl that had been sent to his room the night before on orders to get pregnant. Race 2016 Jesse asks if Luz is going to get in trouble for the stunt he pulled earlier int he day… Race 2016 Luz tells Jesse to win the 200-meter dash. Race 2016 Not for any political agendas, but for Luz. Race 2016 It would make losing to Jesse that day a little easier to swallow.
The next day, everyone back home is gathered around radios to listen to the broadcast of Jesse’s last race. Race 2016 In Berlin, however, Ms. Race 2016 Riefenstahl’s team is not set up or ready to roll cameras. Race 2016 They’ve been ordered not to film the race. Race 2016 She sends them out, quickly, and they hurry to their posts and getting rolling just in time. Race 2016 She goes to the big-wig box with Dr. Race 2016 Geobbel and Hitler and points a camera right at them rather than at the race. Race 2016 She’s going to catch their reaction as Jesse easily wins his third gold medal.
After the race, Avery and Ms. Race 2016 Riefenstahl find themselves alone with Dr. Race 2016 Geobbel. Race 2016 She went to insist that the good doctor not tells her crew what to do. Race 2016 Dr. Race 2016 Geobbel asks her to translate for him as he talks about being a good party guest to Avery. Race 2016 He makes it known that the host (the Nazis) are offended that their guests have not treated them with respect and tells Avery that the Jewish boys (Marty and Sam) can’t run in the 400-meter relay race. Race 2016 Avery basically says the hell they can’t, but Goebbels reminds him of the business deal they have. Race 2016 How would the US Olympic committee feel about Avery’s endorsement of the Berlin games if they knew about the business deal they had? Avery caves.
The US team holds a quick meeting, claiming that the Germans have been holding back their better runners and that they are now afraid that they need to change up the lineup. Race 2016 Sam and Marty are out, Dave and Jesse are in. Race 2016 Sam and Marty call bull, they know it is about the fact that they are Jewish. Race 2016 Jesse doesn’t want to run and the team is at an apparent stalemate.
At the fencing arena, Coach Larry is sitting thinking when Jesse joins him. Race 2016 They get to talking, and coach talks about flying airplanes. Race 2016 He says that what spectators like most is not the thrill of the takeoff and flight, but of the potential crash and the ensuing carnage. Race 2016 Turns out he crashed his plane before the 1924 Olympics, and woke up three weeks after the crash with a newspaper clipping about the gold medal winners. Race 2016 His dad called him some kind of idiot for blowing his chances at the Olympics. Race 2016 He gives Jesse the clipping and leaves. Race 2016 Jesse opens it and sees that across the news story is written “Next Time”. Race 2016 That evening Sam and Marty go to Jesse’s room and tell him not to lose the relay race, giving him permission to run it.
That next day, at the relay race, the team sets a new world record: 39.8 seconds. Race 2016 Hitler doesn’t show up for the race.
Jesse is packing up his room, and his FOUR gold medals (a big deal as it was something that had not been done in decades), when coach Larry comes in. Race 2016 He looks one of the medals over and smiles, proud of Jesse. Race 2016 Ms. Race 2016 Riefenstahl shows up and asks Jesse for a favor. Race 2016 She wants to film him doing the broad jump. Race 2016 After a few takes he asks if this isn’t cheating, it won’t be the real jump in her film. Race 2016 She says it is so that people will never forget what he did.
Back home, Coach Larry, his secretary Peggy, and Jesse and Ruth Owens are going to a special, formal dinner held in Jesse’s honor. Race 2016 Sadly, they party is stopped, and Jesse and Ruth are told they will have to use the service entrance. Race 2016 Larry is ready to go to war over this, but Jesse calms him down, and they go to the service entrance while Larry goes through the front door. Race 2016 When they get to the service elevator, a young fan (a white kid) asks for Jesse’s autograph.
While the last scene plays out, captions about what became of the people in the movie are played:
Three years later, in September of 1939, Germany invaded Poland, and World War II began. Race 2016 Luz was forced into military service and sent to the front lines. Race 2016 He and Jesse remained friends and in contact up until Luz was killed in action.
People lined the streets to welcome Jesse home from the 1936 Olympics, though the White House never publicly acknowledged Jesse and his accomplishments.
Larry Snyder continued coaching at Ohio State until he retired. Race 2016 Several of his athletes went on to be major record holders. Race 2016 He went to the Olympics in Rome in 1960 as the track coach.
Jesse and Ruth had three daughters and remained married until his death from lung cancer in 1980. Race 2016 Jesse was posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.
