This Christmas Will Smith returns to theaters in a gripping new drama that will make the National Football League nervous.
In Concussion, Smith plays Dr. Bennet Omalu, a Nigerian-born forensic pathologist whose autopsies of former Pittsburgh Steelers players led to the discovery of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), a “progressive degenerative disease of the brain found in athletes (and others) with a history of repetitive brain trauma.” Omalu’s findings forced the NFL to admit years of hard hits, concussions, and mistreatment had a serious effect on many of its players.
Concussion also stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Richard T. Jones, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Luke Wilson, Albert Brooks, and Alec Baldwin. It hits theaters this Christmas.
