ITEM#: 2519746

Based on the novel by Bryce Courtenay and set against the racial strife of 1930s South Africa, THE POWER OF ONE is a spirited tale of a young boy's fight against oppression starring Stephen Dorff as P.K., a lonely English orphan who is forced to endure racial hatred at an exclusive Afrikaaner boarding school. Perpetually the outsider, he is constantly tormented by his British-bashing classmates. With the onset of WWII, P.K. is taken in by Doc (Armin Mueller-Stahl), a liberal German scientist, and becomes his ward while incarcerated in a political prison. In prison, he meets Geel Piet (Morgan Freeman), a strong African boxer who teaches him the power of African myth, dialect, and the fine art of boxing. Armed with motivation and a new way to defend his beliefs, P.K. is able to start over at a more liberal high school, where he grows into a young man tempered by the racism and violence surrounding him. P.K.'s battle for personal and political freedom becomes a quest for racial equality and respect. He goes against convention and, with an African friend, ventures into the segregated townships to teach reading. Ultimately, P.K.'s actions leave his schoolmates irate--forcing him to enter the ring to fight for freedom. Director John G. Avildsen's inspirational and triumphant epic of one boy's battle against hatred and oppression is set to a moving African score composed by Hans Zimmer, featuring the music of the Masibemunye Bulawayo Choir.

  • family memories

    This is a movie that our dad loved. My sister just got married and she doesn't have cable so she needed some of our movies. I grabbed a bunch of them to take to her. I picked up the case for Power of One and she was so excited to show her hubby. I opened the case and it wasn't in there. So I thought it would be a great gift for my brothers and sisters for Father Day. We all remember that day the Power of One Dad.

  • A little-known Treasure!

    I'm surprised how few people have seen this beautiful film! While it is not appropriate for young children due to the nature of it's theme (segregation in South Africa and some of the violence that comes with it), it is a soulful exploration for teens and adults. I was pleasantly surprised to find this little-known treasure of a film, and I share it with friends and family as often as occasion permits. Rated PG-13 for some violence.
