Wolves: Filmmaker Bart Freundlich On His Basketball Drama

2 March 2017 4:05 PM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

Having been 20 years since Bart Freundlich made his feature debut, The Myth of Fingerprints, the filmmaker hasn’t exactly built his reputation based on being prolific or any sort of auteur, although his eighth movie Wolves may be his best one yet, maybe because it’s so different from his earlier ones.

It stars Taylor John-Smith (Cruel Intentions) as Anthony, the hot-shot basketball star of his private New York Catholic school, something his mother (Carla Gugino) hopes will get him into Cornell on a scholarship. The only thing holding Anthony back is his shaky relationship with his English professor father Lee (Michael Shannon), an abusive alcoholic and chronic gambler whose growing gambling debts are starting to cause problems for the whole family.

As things continue to get worse, Anthony finds a new mentor in a street ball player who calls himself Socrates (John Douglas Thompson) who forces the young man to make some tough decisions. »
