Usain Bolt is a globally adored icon. He is a man who defines athletics, transcends sport, and embodies his homeland, a man whose signature lightning pose has become a symbol of inspiration for generations now and to come. He is a man we know from the track – his focus, his smile, his winning, and now I Am Bolt lets us see the real man behind the Triple Treble Olympic Gold Medals for the very first time. Usain shares unprecedented access to himself, welcoming us into his life as an Olympic & sporting legend, best friend, teammate, and son. Experience first-hand & close up what being Usain Bolt is really like - from his grueling training days with his incredible coach and sprint team, to competing on the global stage, much of which was shot by Usain himself. See how he overcomes major setbacks and challenges along the way and discover how he spends his downtime and relaxes with his true inner circle, friends and family, allowing the directors unprecedented access into all facets of his life, both on and off the track. Hear from those closest to him – his parents, his agent, his coach, his fellow athletes, and of course from the legend himself. This is the real Usain – as you have never seen before. Raw, revealing, joyful, and inspiring.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that I Am Bolt is an irresistible documentary about Usain Bolt, the Jamaican sprinter who won nine Olympic Gold Medals (in 2008, 2012, and 2016), breaking world records and becoming an icon. Most of the movie consists of scenes of demanding training sessions combined with moments revealing Bolt's charismatic personality and innate intelligence. Audiences are also introduced to the team that works with him. They, too, are delightful, hardworking, and wise. A few instances of profanity ("pissed off," "s--t,") and a couple of short scenes showing Bolt in "party mode" with scantily clad women and sexy dancing are the only sequences that may not be appropriate for younger kids. At its best, this movie is an exciting demonstration of what it takes to be successful. Bolt's natural talent may be unique, but even he says that it's his dedication and work ethic that have enabled him to reach great heights. Audiences can translate Bolt's commitment and positive attitude to just about any challenging task. The film is as inspirational as it is delightful.
