When Michael is running alongside his youngest daughter Susan supposedly down a Queens, NYC neighborhood street on the way to her school, a standard Canadian 'Maximum 50 (km/hour)' speed limit sign is clearly visible instead of the U.S. standard 'Speed Limit 25 (M.P.H.)' See more »
Michael, you're my friend. But you spent two years in medical school. And you quit. Two years in law. And you quit. A couple of businesses - quit. And God knows how many jobs. Now your marriage......

One of the Best Canadian movies ever made.
Yes I do agree with Castor from Victoria, Running is an outstanding achievement. This movie should be on video so can anyone can see it. The story is good, the performance of all actors are great and yes the music score is out of this world. After the movie I did have to go for a jog while "running" the music score into my head. Watch your TV guide for running and set up your VCR to tape it. You will be happy to add this movie to your collection.
