Black Cloud

Black Cloud opens tomorrow in Selected Cities. I know it is showing at the Loews Cineplex State in NYC. Check to see if it is showing in your city.

Here's the description from IMDB:

"Black Cloud, is an inspirational story about a young Navajo, Native American boxer, who overcomes personal challenges as he comes to terms with his heritage, while fighting his way for a spot on the US Olympic boxing team."

Since I am a complete sucker for inspirational sports movies and Eddie Spears, who plays the starring role, I will be seeing it. It also stars Russell Means and Tim McGraw (is that last one a good thing?) and is written and directed by Rick Schroeder. Yes, Silver Spoons fans, Rick Schroeder. And I know he's done a lot of things since Silver Spoons, including a nice stint on the now defunt NYPD Blue. But I'll always think of him first as little Ricky Stratton.

Review will follow next week.

Sounds interesting. Never heard of this Russell Means guy.

Who wrote the screenplay?

Asking who Russell Means is is a little bit like someone asking who Malcolm X is. OK, maybe a cross between Malcolm X and Al Sharpton, but you get the picture.

Go read his bio.And Rick Schroeder wrote the screenplay. Go, Ricky, go.
