| Chasing A Dream -Run to See this One ***1/2
Larry Levinson, in association with Hallmark Channel, has done it again. He has produced a wonderful film.

When his childhood buddy is killed in a tragic accident due to a mistake that the friend made, the friend resolves to complete the dead youth's task of running a mile within 4 minutes.

Before this tragedy struck, our hero had been on the football team coached by the man who happens to be his father. Treat Williams, as the football coach, plays an unforgettable character in tune with the usual Williams performances-difficult, abrasive, opinionated and a stickler to the rules.

The aim of his son finds him soon in conflict with his father. There is an excellent supporting performance by Kevin Kilner as Coach Leo, who in turn comes into conflict with his fellow colleague Williams over this matter.

Besides being a movie of the human spirit, it is a story of sportsmanship and resolve as well as determination and growing up.

A wonderful family film highly recommended. You have to see how our hero is able to win everyone over including his dead pal's mother.
