The film actually premiered last year at film festivals to pretty solid reviews, with most film critics praising Ben Foster's performance.

TRAILER RATING: 3/5 STARS
Here's the official synopsis:
The film charts the thrilling rise of pro-cyclist Lance Armstrong through the 90s and early 2000s, battling cancer, as he and his fellow American teammates dominate and change the quintessentially European sport of cycling. Winning the Tour de France an unprecedented seven times, Lance retires as one of the great sporting heroes of our time, and worth millions of dollars. David Walsh, sports writer, is at first charmed by Lance’s charisma and talent. Seven Tours later, and ostracised by the cycling community for speaking out, he believes the world is being sold a lie. A lone voice, it is several years before Lance is exposed.
The Program hits select theaters and VOD on March 18th.
