An Hockey Movie based on a True Story

The Rocket is a 2007 Canadian hockey movie featuring Roy Dupuis, Remi Girard and Stephen McHattie.

This is a must see movie for various reason (and no, sexy Roy Dupuis is NOT the only good reason to watch this movie). It is a fast paced movie about hockey legend Maurice Richard (the Rocket Richard), one of the biggest and most popular ever French-Canadian icon.

The movie retrace his life as a French-Canadian hockey player in the NHL, his family life, and the events that lead to his suspension and the infamous 1955 Montreal riots. The “Richard riot” have a important place in Quebec culture and is one of the factor that have lead to the quiet revolution of the early 1960’s.
