Director Reginald Hudlin discusses Safety

I was so inspired and moved by this true story.  So now he’s going to play football at a D-1 level, manage his insane school workload and be the father to his little brother. It’s an impossible task.

This is a powerful, inspirational story that really is family entertainment in the best sense of the word.

That’s what I promise you with this movie.

The connection that Ray and Fahmarr have is so heartwarming and you’re really rooting for them.
