This is a small Canadian independant film which is a biography of the famous NHL goaltender, Terry Sawchuck. Mark O'Brien plays Terry and his real life wife, Georgina Reilly portrays his long sufferinging wife Pat. The film takes you from Terry growing up poor in Winnipeg in the depression, to his pressure filled years starring with the Detroit Red Wings in the 1950's to his Stanley Cup winning year in Toronto in 1967, then to his declining years with Detroit, LA and the New Yorl Rangers. He struggled with the pressure over the years often turning to drinking. American comedian - actor, Kevin Pollock has a interesting role as the Detroit General Manager for 36 years, Jack Adams. I give this a 5.5/10
