Film about NFL player’s dreams presented in BFF Spotlight Screening

Bentonville Film Fest

The Bentonville Film Festival presented their spotlight screenings Thursday. 

Tom Shadyac’s ‘Brian Banks’ was one of two that played Thursday night.

The film captures a football player’s NFL dreams being completely ruined when he is falsely accused of rape and sent to prison. 

“This story is a story about one persons journey to fight for redemption, for freedom, for truth. It’s a story that exposes some flaws about our judicial system within America,” said Brian Banks, former NFL linebacker.

The film festival also presented Martha Stephens’ film “To the Stars.”
