Following events surrounding the legendary Penn State football coach Joe Paterno and the aftermath of his assistant coach Jerry Sandusky’s sexual abuse scandal, the HBO Film Paterno is available for Digital Download May 7th.


After becoming the winningest coach in college football history, Joe Paterno, played by Academy Award® and Emmy Award® winner Al Pacino (HBO’s “You Don’t Know Jack,” “Scent of a Woman”), is embroiled in the Sandusky scandal, challenging his entire football legacy and forcing him to face questions of institutional failure on behalf of the victims.
