Loved it! Great actors! Heart wrenching at times.
Well directed, well acted. Powerful true story.
From a macro level, Brian Banks should just be a social justice film, but as we peer into the life of Banks himself, you’ll see a deeper and more profound story.
Hodge’s performance is what keeps Brian Banks on track. He is powerful in scenes of anger, but he may be even better in purely silent moments where his unspoken reactions are eloquent.
Perhaps the worst thing a film can be, even more so than the binary of good or bad, is forgettable.
