Chicago Screenings Of Powerful Doc ‘Lenny Cooke’ Nov.29 - Dec.5


The Chicago premiere screenings for the documentary film

Lenny Cooke, which Tambay reviewed last month (HERE) are set to take place at

the Gene Siskel Film Center in downtown Chicago from Friday Nov. 39

until Thursday Dec. 5.

Co-directed by Ben

and Joshua Safdie and chronicling

the all too common story of too much too

soon, Cooke documents the sad story of Lenny

Cooke who, over a decade ago, was ranked the number one high school

basketball player in the country and was destined for NBA greatness.

However, bad advice, bad timing, youthful arrogance and a

serious lack of discipline resulted in Cooke crashing and burning his career before

it even started.

In addition to the screenings, the directors of the film will be present

for the opening Nov. 29th screening along with

producer Adam Shopjorn; and executive

director Joakim Noah of the Chicago Bulls will be present at

another screening date to be announced soon.
