To be fair, we only watched this because of Zachary Quinto...he's in two short scenes!
The rest...well, it's about money and basketball...with very little of either! How can you make a film about basketball without any basketball!?!
Prior knowledge of the NBA and how [and why] parasitical sports agents ply their trade...is advisable. Or, you will be bored silly...unless you are absolutely fanatical about not watching basketball!
Shot on an iPhone...and, it really does look rather striking. The only [real] question that this film asks is: Why aren't more films shot on this relatively cheap device? Especially when this is the result!
During an NBA lockout, a sports agent, Dean, presents his rookie client, Erick Scott, with an intriguing and controversial business opportunity.
