Through the eyes of the greatest athletes of all time, IN SEARCH OF GREATNESS is a cinematic journey into the secrets of genius.

From award-winning filmmaker Gabe Polsky (“?Red Army”, ?“?Genius”?) ?IN SEARCH OF GREATNESS is a groundbreaking feature documentary revealing the true nature and nurture of the greatest athletes of all time, including Wayne Gretzky, Pelé, Jerry Rice, Muhammad Ali, Venus & Serena Williams, Michael Jordan and others. Through a series of intimate conversations and captivating footage, Polsky leads viewers on an entertaining, thrilling, and inspiring personal journey.

“Rarely have I encountered a sports movie as smart or thrilling as this one — it makes one look at the world of sports, and beyond, in an entirely different way."
- Scott Feinberg, ?The Hollywood Reporter

“Great characters and filmed beautifully. It's Gladwellian polemical side--soulful and persuasive-- is adulterated well with trademark oddness--the lingering-a-little-too-long shots, the B-roll, and the clincher, the Walter Gretzky singing "Que Sera." Perfect pitch!”
- Nick Paumgarten, ?The New Yorker

“Wayne Gretzky. Jerry Rice. Pele. In Search of Greatness gives us unprecedented access to – and understanding of – the true source of their athletic genius. A must see for athletes, parents, coaches, and just about anyone interested in the upper limit of human achievement.”
- Ben Reiter, ?Sports Illustrated
