OTTAWA PREMIERE | STARTS MARCH 18
“This is a superbly cast and performed picture each tiny bit-player has personality though obviously the tour-de-force of the Tour de France tragedy is Foster, who is mesmeric, frighteningly committed and uncannily like Armstrong. To the point that its hard to see, however much you strain, the segues between archive and freshly filmed footage.” – Empire
From Academy Award® nominated director Stephen Frears (The Queen, Philomena) and producers Working Title (The Theory Of Everything, Everest, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), comes the true story of the meteoric rise and fall of one of the most celebrated and controversial men in recent history, Lance Armstrong.
Based on the award winning book Seven Deadly Sins by David Walsh, and featuring a stellar cast including Ben Foster, Chris ODowd, Guillaume Canet (Tell No One) and Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad), this tense and suspenseful thriller looks at how one of the greatest deceptions in the modern era was uncovered while Armstrong convinced the world he was a hero, winning the Tour de France seven times.
