Brian Banks was sent to hell and back in the spring of 2002 when he was wrongfully accused and convicted of rape. Over the following nine years, he fought justice to clear his name and get his chance to return to the place he always felt at home - the football field.
Brian Banks, a new film by Tom Shadyac, tells Banks’ courageous journey in all its grit and heartache. And though there is never the promise of a happy ending, you can’t deny that Brian feels fortunate that his story is getting the platform to educate and inspire those like him.
Check out that and a whole lot more as we sit down with Banks and Shadyac to discuss the film, the journey, and the importance that these stories don't get lost in the shuffle.
