Chismillionaire's Weekend movie pick- Bra Boys

One could make a case for passing up the silver screen this weekend with The Masters, NHL playoffs, NBA playoffs and Red Sox/Yankees weekend series but I will provide the run down.

Chismillionaire's pick is the Australian surfer documentary Bra Boys narrated by Russel Crowe in limited release.

Bra Boys

The first officially sanctioned documentary about Maroubra's notorious surf-gang, the Bra Boys. Showing their success in professional big wave surfing, exploring their reputation for hard partying and rough justice, touching on their running battle with authorities and showing their reliance on one another to fit into and survive in a society in which they are displaced. The film also focuses on the evolution of the Sydney beach side suburb of Maroubra and the historical stigma associated with Australia's rebellious surf community, and the way it has contributed to their social displacemen

Prom Night

Donna’s senior prom is supposed to be the best night of her life. After surviving a horrible tragedy, she has finally moved on and is enjoying her last year of high school. Surrounded by her best friends, she should be safe from the horrors of her past. But when the night turns deadly, there is only one person who could be responsible…a man she thought was gone forever. Now, Donna and her friends must find a way to escape the sadistic rampage of an obsessed killer, and survive a night “to die for.

Smart People
SMART PEOPLE is the darkly comic story of Lawrence Wetherhold, a widowed, acerbic and self-absorbed literature professor played by Dennis Quaid, who has alienated his son and turned his daughter into an overachieving, friendless teen. He falls for Janet (Sarah Jessica Parker), one of his former students, while at the same time his ne’er-do-well brother (Academy Award®-nominee Thomas Haden Church) unexpectedly shows up at his door, triggering in him the need to change and reconnect with his family before he can make any steps forward in his life. Ellen Page (“Juno”) and Ashton Holmes (“A History of Violence”) also star

Street Kings
In STREET KINGS, a police thriller directed by David Ayer, Keanu Reeves plays Tom Ludlow, a veteran LAPD Vice Detective. Ludlow sets out on a quest to discover the killers of his former partner, Detective Terrance Washington (Terry Crews). Academy® Award winner Forest Whitaker plays Captain Wander, Ludlow’s supervisor, whose duties include keeping him within the confines of the law and out of the clutches of Internal Affairs Captain Biggs (Hugh Laurie). Ludlow teams up with a young Robbery Homicide Detective (Chris Evans) to track Washington’s killers through the diverse communities of Los Angeles. Their determination pays off when the two Detectives track down Washington’s murderers and confront them in an attempt to bring them to justice.
