Toby McTeague is a 1985 Canadian coming-of-age drama film directed by Jean-Claude Lord, and stars Yannick Bisson as the titular character, a young and talented motocross racer who dreams of making it to the top of the sport. The film also stars Winston Rekert as his father, and Andrew Bednarski as his younger brother. The story follows Toby, a teenager from a working-class family in rural Quebec, who is determined to become the best motocross racer in the world. He spends every spare moment training on his motorcycle, often to the detriment of his schoolwork and family life. His father, a hardworking factory worker, disapproves of Toby's obsession with racing and wants him to focus on his studies and his family responsibilities.

Despite his father's disapproval, Toby continues to pursue his dreams, and soon catches the eye of a local motocross coach, who takes him under his wing and helps him to hone his skills. Toby quickly rises through the ranks of the local racing community, and soon finds himself competing in national and even international competitions.

As Toby's success on the racetrack grows, so too does his fame and fortune. He becomes a household name in Quebec, and is even offered a lucrative sponsorship deal by a major corporation. However, his success comes at a price, as he must constantly balance his racing career with his family obligations and his own personal wellbeing.

Toby's father remains skeptical of his son's chosen path, and the two often clash over Toby's racing ambitions. Meanwhile, Toby's younger brother, who idolizes his older brother, begins to follow in his footsteps and takes up motocross racing himself. This further complicates Toby's already complicated relationship with his family, and forces him to confront his own motivations and ambitions.

Throughout the film, Toby learns valuable lessons about the importance of hard work, perseverance, and dedication, as well as the importance of family, friendship, and love. He struggles to balance his own ambitions with his responsibilities to his loved ones, and ultimately must make some difficult decisions about where his true priorities lie.

Overall, Toby McTeague is a heartwarming and inspiring film about a young man's quest to live up to his dreams and become the best he can be, even in the face of adversity and opposition. With its vivid portrayal of the thrilling world of motocross racing, its heartfelt exploration of family dynamics and relationships, and its uplifting message of hope and perseverance, it is a must-see film for sports fans and movie lovers alike.
