It was probably only a matter of time before someone made some sort of film about Brett Favre. Well, here it is.
The film is documentary called Last Day At Lambeau by director Michael Neelsen. It will debut at the Wisconsin Film Festival on April 18. Here’s the rundown from the festival.
A documentary that will be of great interest to football fans in general and Packer fans in particular, Last Day at Lambeau chronicles the adoration and contempt that millions of sports fans feel toward pro football star Brett Favre. The film depicts the divorce of Favre and the Green Bay Packers in 2008 and concludes with Favre’s last game at Lambeau Field on October 24, 2010.
In an approach that is notable for its even-handedness, director Michael Neelsen explores in impressive detail the controversial fate of Brett Favre, soliciting opinions and responses from historians, journalists, and fans.
Ultimately, the film is as much about the fascinating and complicated relationships fans have with their heroes as it is about the ultimately divergent paths of Favre and the Packers.
Here’s the teaser.
