Madison – Filtered
In 1971 air-conditioner repairman and boat enthusiast Jim McCormick entertains his desire to go down as a legend in the record books when the Gold Cup Hydroplane Boat Race improbably comes to his small town of Madison, Indiana. Immediately, Jim seizes his opportunity to enter the contest. With a motley crew of fellow mechanics and friends at his side, Jim fixes up his old boat and brings hope to the blighted industrial city
“Madison” is based on a true story of the boat racer Jim McCormick and his racing career, and how it ended and then started up again. Jim and his boy have a wonderful relationship and it soars throughout the film. The marriage of Jim McCormick had its ups and downs but they worked through everything and loved each other a great deal. This is a great family film.
