The World’s Fastest In­dian

SATUR­DAY Ten, 6.30pm, PG ( 2005)

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

An­thony Hop­kins puts on his patented charm to play New Zealan­der Burt Munro, who, in 1967, set the land-speed world record on his souped-up 1920s mo­tor­bike. Hop­kins plays Munro as a kindly, quaint and naive man, who speaks of his In­dian mo­tor­cy­cle with an un­abashed aff ec­tion. In his re­tire­ment, he chases the dream of break­ing the land-speed record at the Speed Week tri­als on the Bon­neville Salt Flats in Utah. Af­ter years in Hol­ly­wood mak­ing block­busters like Species and Thir­teen Days, di­rec­tor Roger Don­ald­son re­turned home to di­rect this stir­ring homage to his long-time hero.
