Released in 2000, this film staring The Denzel as Rubin ‘Hurricane’ Carter tells the story of a boy, then prize fighter and his life-long struggle with the powers that be. (Aka: The “Man”.) That’s Hurricane below.It was on Starz.
We watched it. I was delightfully surprised.
Do you remember the Bob Dylan, “Hurricane” song? Yeah, I never know the inspiration. As it turns out it was Hurricane Carter.
“Here comes the story of the hurricane,
The man the authorities came to blame
For somethin that he never done.
Put in a prison cell, but one time he could-a been
The champion of the world.”
