The Boy Who Had Everything

0 Love It
Save it
Chariots of Fire, ocker-style, with its over-achieving hero caught between mother, a brassy blonde parvenue, and alma mater, a pretentious private college with sadistic humiliation rites. Wallace bodges around the early '60s context and his golden boy's Oedipal inclinations, and understandably there's an awkwardness here in the performances of real-life mother and son Cilento and Connery, who evinces little of father Sean's cruel charisma or acting ability.
