The film reunites Goodwill Hunting filmmakers Affleck and Damon, and marks the duo’s first project under their Artists Equity production company, as well as Affleck’s first time directing his long-time friend. The Nike movie has also sparked early Oscar buzz and will likely be in the running for best picture and acting awards.

Starring Damon as former Nike executive Sonny Vaccaro and Affleck as Nike CEO Phil Knight, the film takes place in the mid-1980s and explores how the sportswear brand changed the game of athlete-brand partnerships. Vaccaro is tasked with a long-shot effort to sign then-rising NBA superstar Michael Jordan (whose face is never seen onscreen) as a spokesperson for Nike’s ailing basketball sneaker line, despite the skepticism of his own boss. It’s a hard sell that sees Vaccaro traveling from Nike’s home base of Oregon to North Carolina to win over Jordan’s parents, Deloris and James (played by Davis and Julius Tennon) and the rookie player’s agent, David Falk (Chris Messina).
