The Outsider: Graeme Obree story

Headset Press are big fans of Mr Obree and followed his attempt at the Human Powered Land Speed Record. He may not of taken the top spot but, his enthusiasm and pioneering spirit are to behold. The winning team were a bunch of highly talented boffins. Graeme was building his in his kitchen, as always that stark contrast between him and the establishment is there. He comes across as such a nice bloke, just trying and living the best way he sees fit. It is rare to see something like this in film form, for Graeme Obree to allow it. Trouble is if you want to see it you have to help fund it and that needs to happen. I know you have watched Flying Scotsman but that is crap, this is the real deal. So come on get involved that is the rad thing about Kickstarter! You can be part of this, not just watch it! Go here donate generously!
