Heart Like a Wheel

1983 Rated PG 1hr 53m

Battling rampant sexism and coping with heartache along the way, drag racer Shirley "Cha Cha" Muldowney breaks speed records and the gender barrier in this affecting biopic directed by Jonathan Kaplan. Hooked on auto racing at a young age, spunky Shirley (Bonnie Bedelia) is determined to beat the odds and make it in the male-dominated sport -- even as her personal life falls apart. Beau Bridges, Hoyt Axton and Leo Rossi also star.
