functional sports movie

Will Parker (Matthew Modine) joins Morgan Weld (Cliff Robertson)'s prestigious sailing team with his girlfriend Kate Bass (Jennifer Grey)'s encouragement. Kate is a sailor studying aeronautics. Will asks her to join only to be pressured to cut her. Australia breaks America's winning streak and beats Parker's team. Defeated, he finds Kate working with eccentric designer Joe Heiser (Stellan Skarsgård). Despite her reservations, the two men work to win back the America's Cup. Will finds Morgan has gone mad but recruits an eager supporter in Morgan's daughter Abigail.

The sailing is kinetic. The tactics are reasonably explained. It adapted some of the actual America's Cup incidents. It's a functional sports movie. There is a romantic backdrop but it does not take full advantage. It could have been a romantic triangle or even a quadrangle. The acting is solid. With the energetic sailing scenes, this has its memorable moments.

Outstanding Footage of Americas's Cup 12 Meter Sailboats Racing

The best part of the movie is where the boats are racing off Freemantle, Australia. The winds look like they were around 30 knots and the waves looked like six to ten footers. Glorious film! Very, very true to the reality of racing those beautiful mono-hull sailboats. I do not think the current America's Cup races with the ultra expensive multi-hull sailboats is as interesting as the races with the old 12 Meters, which are closer to what a typical middle class American racer of today can identify with.

The scenes of the high-end yachting world of Newport, Rhode Island were of interest as well. I suggest anyone with an interest in sailing, will find Wind to be an entertaining and enjoyable movie.

I plan to buy a DVD copy for my collection.

Heart and Soul Excitement, Timeless Messages

After reading over 200 reviews of "Wind", most of which praise it to the stars and rave and rave on, there is little I can add to such comments as "stirs the soul", "takes your breath away", "one of the best movies of all time", "should be on the shelf of every family with children", and "should be required viewing for young people and anyone bored with life".

This film, one of the best examples of director Carroll Ballard's magic, will knock your socks off and blow you away with its excitement but realism (you will hear and feel the boats groaning and keening with the wind stresses!), and GREAT MESSAGES - It is about losing everything, and winning it all back again through individual and team angst and sheer will (I have shown parts of it to my science students not just for the physics of sailing, but for these timeless messages). Sailor or not, no matter how many times you watch it, it leaves you glowing for hours.
