The World’s Fastest Indian

Indian Writer/director Roger Donaldson ("Thirteen Days") comes full circle on the subject of his 1971 documentary "Offerings To The God Of Speed," about the late New Zealand motorcycle enthusiast Bert Munro who took his 1920 Indian Scout to the Bonneville Salt Flats to break speed records. Anthony Hopkins teams up with Roger Donaldson for the first time since their work on "The Bounty" in 1984 and gives an impassioned performance as Munro that sits snugly against the actor’s canon of brilliant character studies. Hopkins transports the simple story about an aging man with an ageless dream into the stuff of legend.

Rated PG-13, 127 min. (B) (Three Stars)
