Boys to Men?

Filmmaker Frederick Marx's powerful follow-up to his critically acclaimed documentary Hoop Dreams continues his extraordinary exploration of the lives of boys and young men. Concerned once again with the distance between boys' dreams and the limits of reality, Marx focuses on a group of teenagers from a range of ethnic, racial, and socioeconomic backgrounds as they navigate troubled lives and shifting ideals of manhood. The result is an intimate and accessible snapshot of the deeper crisis in American masculinity. The DVD includes three additional pieces that focus on one boy at a time.
