A shameless plug...

If you get a chance, go and see this film - The World's Fastest Indian. We saw it on Friday and it's the best film I've seen this year.

"In `60s New Zealand, at the bottom of the world, Burt Munro takes a 1920 Indian motorcycle and, delightfully without resources other than his own obsession and a Kiwi #8 wire mentality, spends his retirement rebuilding the bike and following his dream to go to Speed Week at Salt Lake in Utah. Under funded, without the support of a team and against all the odds he not only makes it to Bonneville, he sets a world land speed record, not once, but again and again."

It's not a bloke film - I loved it. In fact, everyone I know who's seen it has loved it. It's gripping and amazing. It's a true story. If you can get to see it, do go. For more about it, go here!
