Screener Squad: High Flying Bird

Steven Soderbergh’s iPhone crusade continues with this NBA drama penned by Tarell Alvin McCraney (Moonlight). Andre Holland headlines as Ray, a sports agent who finds himself unable to access any money or help his clients when the NBA begins a lockout to negotiate new contracts with the TV networks. Not willing to accept these terms, Ray sets out to work some machinations of his own to right some wrongs while having some very philosophical discussions about the nature of basketball with a variety of friends and co-workers. While Justin and Lara are certainly not sports fanatics, they are big Steven Soderbergh fans. Will that be enough to help them like this movie? Find out here!
