The World's Fastest Indian
Anthony Hopkins stars as Burt Munro, a man who never lets the dreams of his youth fade. 

After a lifetime of perfecting his classic 1920 Indian motorcycle, Burt set off from Invercargill in New Zealand to test his bike at the Bonneville Salt Flats Speed Week in Utah. With the odds stacked against him, he set a new speed record and captured the spirit of his times.

Reuniting with director Roger Donaldson, (who directed him in The Bounty), Hopkins adopts the role of the real-life Munro with a genuine sense of good-spirited fun.

"One of Hopkins' most endearing performances" Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
