About the Movie
“Linsanity” chronicles the surprising rise of basketball player Jeremy Lin. in February 2012; an entire nation of basketball fans unexpectedly went “Linsane.” Prior to this now-legendary run, Lin had faced adversity in his career at every turn. He wasn’t offered a scholarship by any major university, nor was he drafted by any NBA team after a standout collegiate career at Harvard. Stuck in the mire of a disappointing season, the New York Knicks did what no other NBA team had thought about doing—they gave backup point guard Jeremy Lin an opportunity to prove himself. He took full advantage, scoring more points in his first five NBA starts than any other player in the modern era, and created a legitimate public frenzy in the process.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Lin raised his game's possibilities; you just wish that Mr. Leong had raised his.
Fresh: [Its] strong but wholly appropriate Christian overtones may alienate some fans, but this is rousing fare ...
Fresh: A plethora of Lin family home-video clips, riveting archival and Leong-shot footage ... help tell the icon's remarkable story.
Fresh: You may have watched Lin's rise to national prominence the first time, but it's still easy to get caught up in the moment.
This is an amazing documentary. I was truly inspired. You don't have to be a big basketball fan to love this movie. But you will become a HUGE fan of Jeremy Lin.
LINSANITY: TWO WORDS: WATCH IT!
Amazing story, glad I watched it! Truely one of the best heart warming documentary I have watch in a long time or ever....
Top notch documentary! Live Lin's candor. A modern day example of God being large and in charge... even using our failures for our good.
