Is this too late to be an Oscar contender? A dramatic true story, Concussion takes on the NFL brain injury scandal. Will Smith plays Dr. Bennet Omalu, the man who discovered the link between concussions sustained during football games and the deaths of retired NFL players. Alec Baldwin shows up to play Alec Baldwin (no complaints here). Maybe this will be the movie to finally win The Fresh Prince the Oscar that he deserves?
