Tribeca Film Festival features 'We Are Marshall'

Saturday night's "drive-in" movie at the World Financial Center Plaza as part of the Tribeca Film Festival is "We Are Marshall," winner of a fan poll of favorite football flicks in honor of the draft.

(Actually, it's not really a drive-in. This is Manhattan. It's a walk-in.)

It's not a great movie by any means. But it's earnest and well intentioned and I thought the recreation of the plane crash was scary and realistic.

Plus, it features SportsWatch/WatchDog pal Kate Mara.

(For the record, I'd like her father, Chris, and everyone in the Giants and Steelers organizations to know I was extremely well behaved in choosing a picture of the lovely and talented Ms. Mara to illustrate this post, out of respect to all concerned.)
