Iron Will

type

Ethan Hawke-look-alike Mackenzie Astin plays Will Stoneman who, in 1917, enters a treacherous 500-mile dogsled race from Winnipeg to St. Paul for a $10,000 prize. Chock-full of rugged and unspoiled winter landscapes (unfortunately diminished on a TV screen) and set to a sweeping score, Iron Will is part The Natural, part The Waltons at the Iditarod. And while this family film is as sappy as a Vermont maple, it’s still a real heartwarmer. B+
