Inspirations for great stories can come from any walk of life. Sometimes the most fantastic tale is not a fantasy or science fiction but in fact inspired from a true story. Star Movies Select HD has been celebrating stories with stellar festivals like Book Adaptations and Films To See Before You Die. This time the channel is committed to showcase not just stories, but daring, beautiful and inspiring True Stories all through the month of April.
This festival has been curated with true stories about some of the most iconic individuals, defining sporting events and historic moments of war. The inspiring story of Erin Brockovich – how one woman stood up against a corporate giant and prevailed and Joy, the story of the inventor Joy Mangano who built a business empire against all odds.
Movies like Moneyball, in which a seasoned baseball manager builds an unbeatable team using statistical analysis and Chariots of Fire, the story of two British track athletes, one a determined Jew and the other a devout Christian who compete in the 1924 Olympics.
True Stories like Glory, the remarkable tale of Robert Shaw, an officer in the Federal Army during the American Civil War who volunteered to lead the first company of black soldiers and fight prejudice and Men of Honour, the indomitable true story of Carl Brashear who is determined to be the first African American Navy Diver in a time where racism is rife.
