Race the Sun!


For those of you who read my blog about Silent Night (from January 2), you might be interested in another movie based on a true story with Hawaiian connections.

Race the Sun was made in 1996 and tells the story of a group of 1990 Hawaiian High School students who build a solar car. They are encouraged and inspired by their teacher (played by Halle Berry.) They win their local competition and earn a trip to the 1990 World Solar Challenge in Australia for a competition.

James Belushi and Casey Affleck (Ben’s younger brother) also star in this movie that encourages kids to believe they can accomplish their dreams. The misfit group of troubled kids runs into many roadblocks and pitfalls during the six-day race.

I enjoyed this funny, entertaining movie very much, and when I read the Amazon reviews, discovered I wasn’t the only one!

Want a great family night movie? Get hold of Race the Sun and enjoy!

Mahalo for visiting!
