Overview

Based upon a true story, Madison is a father-son drama based on the highly publicized efforts in Madison, IN, during the hydroplane racing season of 1971. Jim McCormick James Caviezel has left behind his life of hydroplane boat racing to settle down and start a family and take a job as an air-conditioner repairman. Though he tries to embrace his new life, he still longs for his racing days, and the boat has become the town laughing stock. The town has also experienced harsh financial strain and the rich corporate sponsors of Jim's competitors have stolen the spotlight again and again. The town of Madison is suddenly asked to host the prestigious Gold Cup championship, and Jim cannot resist, though the town is far less supportive. Jim rallies the community for support in an attempt to bring the pride back to it, though his wife, Bonnie Mary McCormack, is eager to move to the big city and out of the doldrums of Madison, and his son, Mike Jake Lloyd, has become disillusioned with the idea of the boat races and watching the larger contenders win every time. But Jim stubbornly presses on and soon is permitted to play again with the big boys. The film also features veteran actors Bruce Dern, Brent Briscoe, and Paul Dooley.

    Worth Seeing, Especially for Racing Fans

    Overall, it was a very good movie. If you're an "old" diehard like me, you will quickly notice that most of the boats used were incorrect (boats that were actually pickle forks, boats long retired before this Gold Cup, etc.) I'm sure there is no big stockpile of vintage boats, and they did the best with what they had, especially the crash scenes using RC hydros. It was somewhat historically accurate probably due to problems portraying the actual drivers, sponsors, etc. However, it was an inspiring movie similar to "Rocky" and is well worth seeing. It was great to hear the old pistons again and brought back great memories. We saw it at the theatres, but I don't believe you will lose much on a home system.
