Documentary
Even occasional basketball fans should appreciate the documentary back story of hoops phenom LeBron James and his four long-time prep teammates — aka the Fab Five — on their rise to youthful athletic fame in Akron, Ohio. Filmmaker Kristopher Belman has complete access, including home movies and high-school game films. If anything, this perceptive sports doc proves that the careful packaging of potential big-name star jocks begins as early as middle school. By the time they’re in high school — in this case Akron’s St. Vincent/St. Mary’s — they might as well be in the NBA (105 min.).
