GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - A Minnesota author is going national with a film adaptation of his hockey book, "The Code."
"The Last Gladiators" is a documentary based on the book by Ross Bernstein, who visited KARE11 Sunrise to talk about the film.
The film, directed by Academy Award winning director, Alex Gibney, reveals another view of the enforcer in the game of hockey and focuses specifically on the life of Chris Nilan.
It debuts in Minneapolis this weekend for a limited time and will serve as a fundraiser for the Herb Brooks Foundation.
The film will play from February 15-21, 2013 at the St. Anthony Main Theaters in Minneapolis.
