WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

After surviving a battle with cancer, cyclist Lance Armstrong (Foster) wins several Tour de France titles and the affection of the sporting world. However, his victories raise the suspicions of Irish sports journalist David Walsh (O’Dowd), and he sets out to prove to the world his theory that Armstrong was able to achieve his success via an illegal doping program – but he will have to endure the wrath of an enraged Armstrong along the way…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

A mere few years after Armstrong was exposed as one of the biggest frauds in cycling history, comes a film that examines his meteoritic fall from grace and the journalists who uncovered the lie for the world to see.
