Based on a true story, a young football player's dreams to play in the NFL are halted when he is falsely accused of rape and sent to prison.
About The Film

Brian Banks is an all-American football player already committed to USC when he is falsely accused of rape during his junior year of high school. Despite maintaining his innocence, he is railroaded through the system and sentenced to a decade of prison, parole, and registering as a sex offender. Driven by the same thoughtfulness and focus that propelled him as an athlete, Banks continues to fight to clear his name, ultimately partnering with the California Innocent Project.

Veteran director Tom Shadyac deftly handles the dramatic beats of a true story, amassing deserved sympathy for Banks while raising worthy questions about the criminal justice system. Aldis Hodge shines in his portrayal of Brian Banks, a man acutely aware of the unfairness surrounding him but resolutely focused on justice over vengeance.
