In 2001, Lenny Cooke was the most hyped high school basketball player in the country, ranked above future greats LeBron James, Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony. A decade later, Lenny has never played a minute in the NBA. In this quintessentially American documentary, filmmaking brothers Josh and Benny Safdie (Daddy Longlegs) track the unfulfilled destiny of a man for whom superstardom was only just out of reach.

Co-presented by Department of Africana Studies
