The Boys in the Boat (out Jan 4) is a 1930s tale of a college rowing team who go from zero to hero. The handling of the material is as formulaic as it gets, but this film still works because of the energy and emotion generated by the three big rowing races. Such a great story! Joel Edgerton and Luke Slattery the pick of the cast. Grade: B+.
