Storyline

In February 2012, an entire nation of basketball fans unexpectedly went 'Linsane.' Stuck in the mire of a disappointing season, the New York Knicks did what no other NBA team had thought about doing. They gave backup point guard Jeremy Lin an opportunity to prove himself. He took full advantage, scoring more points in his first five NBA starts than any other player in the modern era, and created a legitimate public frenzy in the process. Prior to this now-legendary run, Lin had faced adversity in his career at every turn. He wasn't offered a scholarship by any major university, nor was he drafted by any NBA team after a standout collegiate career at Harvard. Written by Sundance

21 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

This is a documentary film about the rise of Asian American basketball player Jeremy Lin. The director had filmed Lin since he was a star college basketball player at Harvard University and during his early struggles in the NBA. The movie is well made. The store is very inspiring. The making of 'Linsanity' is almost as amazing as Jeremy Lin's sudden rise to worldwide fame. The movie also showed what a lovely person Lin is and what a loving family Lin's family is. I enjoyed it very much. Actually, I have watched the movie three times in my Amazon video library. It's super cool. I especially suggest kids to watch it.
