The BRIAN BANKS biopic is scheduled to make its world premiere on Saturday, Sept. 22 at the 2018 Los Angeles Film Festival.
In this inspirational drama based on a true story, Brian Banks (Hodge), an All American high school football star committed to USC by his junior year, finds his life upended in 2002 when he is falsely accused of rape. Fiercely maintaining his innocence and despite any evidence to support the accusation, Brian is nonetheless railroaded through the justice system and sentenced to a decade of prison and probation. Ultimately, with the help of Justin Brooks (Kinnear) and the California Innocence Project, Bank’s conviction is overturned in 2012, his name is cleared, and he is finally free to pursue his NFL dreams.
