About the Film:
Directed by Ben Safdie, Joshua Safdie. USA. 2013. 88 mins.
In 2001, Lenny Cooke was the most hyped high school basketball player in the country, ranked above future greats LeBron James, Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony. A decade later, he has never played in the NBA. Independent-film fixtures Joshua and Benny Safdie (Daddy Longlegs, The Pleasure of Being Robbed) post the question: What happens whe an American dream comes too early? They track the unfulfilled destiny of a man for whom superstardom was only just out of reach.
Official Selection: Tribeca Film Festival.
