I’ve just taken a break from watching Road, the Dunlop family story. Due for release on the 11 June, if you’re a road racing fan, you will love it. Liam Neeson narrates, adding a real blockbuster feel to the footage, which is edited fantastically.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Narrated by Liam Neeson, ROAD is the heartbreaking and adrenaline-fuelled tale of a family who have dominated road racing for over thirty years, set for release in the UK on 11 June 2014 through Kaleidoscope Entertainment.A sport in which men compete at speeds of up to 200 miles per hour on closed country roads. Roads that on any other day service cars, buses, tractors. Roads that are lined with trees, telegraph posts and stone walls. Unforgiving obstacles when struck by the human body.It is a sport that has claimed many lives over the years – and continues to do so to this day. Ireland and the Isle of Man are two of the few places in the world where the sport still survives.Robert and Joey Dunlop. Quiet men from a rural village in Northern Ireland – but racers who risked everything to win. And Robert’s sons, William and Michael. Two of the world’s leading road racers today. Young men determined to continue a family tradition.Featuring stunning action, candid race day scenes and a gripping narrative, ROADis the story of two generations of one family that have been united by success. And united by tragedy.
