“Wolves” is a movie about a kid getting a scholarship to play basketball at Cornell University. While Cornell doling out free rides for their mediocre team sounds like a fantasy, Michael Shannon shows up to make it real. Shannon is the gambling addict dad that wants to get a piece of the action. The kid wants to make his dad proud, but he also doesn’t want to lose his way of life to gambling on second-rate NCAA games. It’s good enough for a stream, but keep an eye on the basketball scenes. Whomever shot this knows the tempo of High School basketball.
