Ultra-independent - a one person production start to finish - this movie looks at the passion and dedication of American athletes and coaches in the Olympic sport of weightlifting. The sport is extremely popular internationally, but obscure and struggling in the US, where athletes and coaches must train as amateurs with virtually no support, yet compete professional international counterparts. It's not just the story of a sport, but of the human spirit and the struggles and incredible dedication and hope of a small community of people despite the odds against them.

Basato sulla storia vera dell'omonimo pilota truffaldino, Barry Seal - Una storia americana vede Tom Cruise nei panni dello scaltro aviatore prestato al contrabbando con l'America centrale. Licenziato dalla compagnia di volo per cui lavora, il talentuoso Barry Seal (Cruise) viene scoperto e reclutato dalla CIA per una delle operazioni sotto copertura più rischiose della storia degli USA. L'ex pilota di linea si reinventa trafficante d'armi per il governo, trafficante di cocaina per il cartello di Medellìn, guidato dal criminale colombiano Pablo Escobar, e informatore per la DEA. Il film segue le vicende realmente accadute, le incredibili peripezie di un uomo astuto e assetato di ricchezza, mentre sfugge, rifugge e inganna la legge americana.

Winding along 2,728 miles of track over four days, the pair recorded classic railroad songs in waiting rooms and at trackside while the train paused to pick up passengers.
