He Got Game tells the story of Jake Shuttleworth (Denzel Washington). Shuttleworth has spent the last six years in prison after accidentally killing his wife during a violent domestic dispute, leaving his son, star basketball prospect Jesus Shuttleworth (Ray Allen), to fend for himself. One day, the prison warden (Ned Beatty) approaches Jake with an unusual offer: He’ll be given a week of parole to convince Jesus to attend the governor’s alma mater, with the promise of a shortened sentence if he succeeds.

Lee is back at the top of his game, positioning himself as one of the best American filmmakers of his day.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with professional Basketball Player Melita Emanuel-Carr, who has represented team GB and is a Commonwealth Games Silver Medalist.
