"Golden Boy": will high school football continue to be a ticket to success in life? (short film)


Bobby Pollack’s short film “Golden Boy” seems to be an over-extended tale of sibling rivalry.
   
When Evan (Dylan Rourke) is offered a football scholarship, others in his life seem unwilling to let go of him.


From Annabelle films, the short (15 minutes) appears to be set in Georgia. Evan seems to be a star student, so his own threatening behavior when drugs are found in his locker seems over the top.

But now people ask if football is putting young men at risk of concussion and disability later in life.

As for the film title, I remember a door sign that one lost autumn at William and Mary, "the golden genius".
