PG-13 | | Biography, Drama
The inspirational tale of the grandfathers of fitness as we now know it, Joe and Ben Weider. Facing anti-Semitism and extreme poverty, the brothers beat all odds to build an empire and inspire future generations.
In an October 2017 article on al.com, columnist Bob Carlton reported that Birmingham filming locations for this movie, included the Alabama Theatre (a restored 1920s movie palace), the Lyric Theatre (a restored 1910s vaudeville theater), and Temple Emanu-El (a Reform Jewish synagogue built in 1889). Another theater used was the historic "Little Theater" at Samford University.
What you do not realize is all these men want is to compete against the very best.
In the film Joe Weider creates the IFBB on the spot at the Mr. Universe competition in the early 50's. However the organization was already created by the brothers in 1946.
