Debut Trailer for Sports Drama WOLVES with Michael Shannon & Taylor John Smith

WOLVES is a coming-of-age sports drama film directed by Bart Freundlich (The Myth of Fingerprints, The Rebound) which premiered at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival.

In the film, 18-year-old, Anthony Keller (Taylor John Smith) is a high school basketball star. Now in his senior year he is being recruited by Cornell University, a dream come true. Called “Saint” by everyone at his school (St. Anthony’s), he does his best to live up to his name. He is captain of his team, a good student, has a long time girlfriend and some good friends. But the ease with which he moves through his life is a facade. At home, Anthony struggles with his troubled Father, Lee Keller, (Michael Shannon) and his gambling addiction. Anthony’s Mother, Jenny, (Carla Gugino) has made it her mission to keep the family afloat but has done so only with great emotional and financial sacrifice. As Anthony approaches the end of his senior year and the city finals, he is faced with adversity from all sides, and the stakes are high. He must find his own definition of what it means to be a man, both on and off the court, and in doing so he is confronted with the decision of a lifetime.
