More Than a Game - Lebron James/St. Vincent-St. Mary's documentary
Has anyone else seen this? Did a search and couldn't find it.
I just got back from watching this tonight, the first night of its release here in DC. It's been out in select theaters since early October, and has been doing pretty decently according to box office mojo.
I went to watch it because from all the reviews I've read, it's considered one of the best sports documentaries ever. And you know what? In my opinion, the reviews are right.
THe documentary isn't "the Lebron James film" - not even. In fact, Lebron and each of his 4 friends in the "fab 5", plus the coach, were given equal screen time. In fact, the coach probably got the most time. Of course, the Lebron James high school phenomenon had to be addressed, and it was, but it wasn't the focus of the film. Ultimately, it was about brotherhood and family, with basketball as the vehicle.
Anyway, even if you aren't interested in basketball - or any sports, for that matter - I encourage you to go give this film a look. You won't be disappointed.
