Drunk Sober High
"How will they respond to [the film] if their emotions are going to play as opposed to some of the other ways to look at it in the cool light of day?"
The film is largely based on Joe Posnanski's 2012 biography Paterno, which he was actively working on when the scandal came to light.
Paterno, the long-awaited biopic starring Al Pacino that is based around the former Penn State coach's life and events that led to his firing, finally has a release date.

The 48-second trailer released on Friday opens with a pensive-looking Pacino as chants of "Joe Paterno" are heard. It cuts quickly among scenes before concluding with a voice asking "Dad, did you know about Jerry?"
“The question isn’t just what he knew, it’s what he did about it. I think he knew there were complaints. He knew there were rumors," Pacino said.
