The World's Fastest Indian (2005)
A gentle and unchallenging film by the highly uneven Australian filmmaker Roger Donaldson. Anthony Hopkins lives the ageing nature of his character, he is driving Burt Munro forward (literally) to a strong, film-carrying performance. There's charm and wisdom in the existence of Burt, and the film has a timeless soul reminiscent of Paolo Coelho's work: it embraces and romanticizes our dreams and our willingness to pursue them. It is all predictably pleasant, telling the story of a man who is remarkable in not a very remarkable way, but it is a film filled with a positivity and warmth that makes it a refreshing tribute to life.
