Movie about the legendary goaltender will hit theatres in March

Toronto and Vancouver residents will see the movie about one of the most famous Canadian goaltenders Terry Sawchuk 'Goalie' on the 1st of March.

Terry was born in Winnipeg, and he got the title of the best NHL goaltender of the 1950s and 1960s.

The movie was shot in Ontario. As became known, Kevin Pollak plays the general manager Jack Adams and O'Brien's real-life wife Georgina Reilly plays Sawchuk's wife, Pat.

It tells about the life of a great athlete since his youth, and will show about 20 years between the 50s and 70s, and ends with Sawchuk’s tragic death in 1970.

The movie script is based on the book "Sawchuk: The Troubles and Triumphs of the World's Greatest Goalie" written by David Dupuis and the book "Night Work: The Sawchuk Poems" by Randall Maggs.

Other Canadian cities will be able to see 'Goalie' a bit later in spring.

In the recent interview, the film's producer said:

"There's massive human depth to Terry Sawchuk which is why he has inspired a lot of fascination and obsession over the years, beyond his un-paralleled skills, grit and the records that lasted for decades."
