Brian's Song Film Poster


Remake of the 1971 made-for-tv weepy of the same name. Brian Piccolo (Sean Maher) is a football player with everything going for him and is not a little arrogant about his life. When his new room mate Gale (Mekhi Phifer) turns out to be black Brian's latent racism comes to the surface and the two seem destined never to be friends. But Brian turns out to be stricken with cancer and, over considerable personal odds, their two lives intertwine in a meaningful way as Brian faces up to death.
