Concussion / 震荡效应

Will Smith stars in Concussion, a dramatic thriller based on the incredible true David vs. Goliath story of American immigrant Dr. Bennet Omalu, the brilliant forensic neuropathologist who made the first discovery of CTE, a football-related brain trauma, in a pro player and fought for the truth to be known. Omalu’s emotional quest puts him at dangerous odds with one of the most powerful institutions in the world.

改编自珍妮•玛丽•拉斯卡斯于2009年在《GQ》上发表的文章《Game Brain》。电影主要描述脑神经学医生班奈特•奥玛鲁最先发现到运动员容易罹患一种慢性创伤性脑病(CTE),会使该运动员产生自杀念头。故事改编自真实事件,叙述班奈特•奥玛鲁是一名美国脑神经学医生,他是首位发现美式橄榄球员高概率会因职业缘故而造成脑部慢性病变,便决定将此研究公诸于世。但此研究却遭国家美式橄榄球联盟强烈否认,使得班奈特将面临对事业造成强烈冲击的危机。
