Break Away from Word films is a nice, clean family movie. It is set in South Africa, but the problems of corporate downsizing, unemployment, and financial hardship are nearly universal. A father loses his job and offers a bicycle messenger and delivery service to provide for his family. Along the way, he becomes good enough to try his hand at racing. The family sticks together and offers encouragement in trying times.
I found parts of the movie a bit slow, but I am more of an action/thriller person. This would certainly be a good movie for anyone who enjoys competitive cycling or is looking for a family-safe movie to watch together.

I received a copy of this DVD free from the publisher for my review.
