Peter Yates' Oscar-winner is a heart-warming coming-of-age story that has also taken its place as the greatest sports movie about cycling ever made. Funny, moving and inspiring, Breaking Away is one of the most loved feel-good films in cinema history. Four friends graduate from high-school and find themselves looking at an uncertain future in small-town America. Dave's passion is cycling and his dream is to be a world-class champion like the Italians he idolizes. Despite being disillusioned when he finally races against his heroes, his passion for cycling takes on new meaning when he and his friends face a team from the local college in the town's annual bike race, the Little 500. Looked down on by the students Dave faces his greatest challenge yet, one that will test his endurance and spirit to the limit. NOMINATED FOR 5 OSCARS - AVAILABLE FOR THE FIRST TIME ON DVD.
