Cinema – Concussion (15)
Following an autopsy on former footballer Mike Webster, forensic pathologist Omalu detects a neurological deterioration that’s akin to Alzheimer’s disease. He makes his findings public, much to the chagrin of the corporate bods in the upper echelons of the NFL. Continuing to find connections between football and the fatal condition (then labelled chronic traumatic encephalopathy), a crusading Omalu joins forces with a former NFL doctor Julian Bailes (Alec Baldwin), a supporter of Omalu’s ethical cause. Together, they begin to raise awareness about the inherent, life-altering dangers the game’s players face.
