Without Limits is one of two movies made (the other is simply titled Prefontaine) about legendary 1970’s American distance prodigy Steve Prefontaine.
This stars Billy Crudup as Prefontaine and Donald Sutherland plays his coach (at Oregon University) Bill Bowerman. Monica Potter and Matthew Lillard also have roles in the movie.
Of the two films made, this one is more entertaining and I enjoyed it much more. The story of Steve Prefontaine is very interesting, and his heartiness, charisma, and fierceness makes it worth watching a movie about him (and these aspects about him are all portrayed well in the movie).
