This so-so TV-movie is a great tribute to one of Canada's best Olympians, but I still think that Silken deserved a tiny better. If you're unfamiliar with Laumann's story, then perhaps this will prove to be an eye-opening experience, but in general, this film is average at best. More than ever, I actually appreciate what a courageous effort she gave, but much of the movie takes zone before her injury, and quite simply, these parts really aren't all that interesting. I'll never forget Silken's Olympic effort, but this film about her is now quite forgettable.
