Brian Banks

Fact-based drama, directed by Tom Shadyac from a script by Doug Atchison, about the football star of the title (Aldis Hodge) and the seemingly insurmountable hurdles he faced after being imprisoned on a false charge of rape. Xosha Roquemore plays his accuser while Greg Kinnear portrays the head of the California Innocence Project. The densely plotted courtroom procedural is not as clearly told as it should have been, yet it is effective at showing the power of unwavering hope.

Watch out for: Mature themes, including sexual assault, a few sexual references, at least one use of profanity, fleeting rough language.

Rated: A-III, adults; MPAA: PG-13
