Editorial Reviews

In 1984, 17-year-old Ben Wilson was a symbol of everything promising about Chicago: a sweet-natured youngster from the city’s fabled South Side, and America’s top high school basketball prospect. Then, in November of his senior year, his life was abruptly and tragically cut short, sending ripples of horror through the city and the country. 2012 Chicago Film Festival Selection. 2012 Tribeca Film Festival Selection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Benji January 1, 2013
By Sean
Format:DVD
This was a heart warming,yet painful story that really captivates any audience. From his humble beginnings to his remarkable high school career I was completely consumed by this seemingly mythological type character. Of course his untimely death and the end of a phenomenon. Tears of both joy and sorrow, a true classic

I knew very little about this story but had an opportunity to meet the family early on. It was great to have more insight. Unfornately, Chicago violence has not gotten any better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Benji was "the man" July 17, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was fortunate enough to have seen Ben Wilson play in the 1984 Illinois State Championship, in which his team Simeon High School, won. I have also watched the documentary 30 for 30 film, several times on ESPN. It brings tears to my eyes every time I see it.
I was completely satisfied with the purchase. It arrived in a timely manner and in excellent condition. Thank you

The story was very compelling and side at the end of the documentary, it's very comparable to the Len Bias tragedy.

Wonderful documentary about a promising high school basketball player. 17 year old Benjamin Wilson was rated the number one high school basketball player in the country in 1984. He was destined for greatness but something very tragic happened.

Great family movie to show how dreams can be lost in seconds. Kids need to watch more movies based on a true story than most of the garbage we see on tv nowadays.
