Hollywood tries to turn a clash between science and a powerful institution into an immigrant doctor's "such a time as this."mpaa rating:PG-13 (For thematic material including some disturbing images, and language.)Genre:Drama, SportsDirected By: Peter LandesmanRun Time: 2 hours 3 minutes Cast: Will Smith, Alec Baldwin, Albert Brooks, Gugu Mbatha-RawTheatre Release:December 25, 2015 by Columbia PicturesConcussion tries to achieve the depth and stakes of the Biblical story of Esther, without quite enough unchecked power or genocide to support the claim.The movie is based on real-life Dr. Bennet Omaluâ€™s discovery of the danger of repeated brain trauma sustained by professional football players and his battle to publicize that danger.
