‘Stephen Curry: Underrated’ Documentary to Premiere at Sundance Film Festival

It was recently announced that a Peter Nicks-directed documentary about NBA star Stephen Curry would have its world premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival later this month. Titled Stephen Curry: Underrated, the new documentary will feature a combination of archival footage, on-camera interviews and cinematic video to tell Curry’s story.

The documentary will detail Curry’s unlikely rise from an undersized high school and college basketball player to four-time NBA champion. While at Davidson College, he was coached by Bob McKillop, and ultimately his team made a thrilling run in the 2008 NCAA tournament. Curry went on to play for The Golden State Warriors after going pro.

One of Curry's major NBA career achievements is setting the all-time record for three-point field goals made. He was named the NBA Most Valuable Player twice and has won four NBA championships. Some of Curry’s other accomplishments in the NBA include receiving the NBA Finals MVP Award, the NBA All-Star Game MVP Award, and the NBA Sportsmanship Award.

The filmmakers had access to Curry throughout the 2021 NBA season and in the film, they weave the Golden State Warriors’ attempt to win another NBA championship following one of the worst seasons in the franchise’s history. Stephen Curry: Underrated will also feature interviews with filmmakers Ryan Coogler and Erick Payton.

Stephen Curry promised his mother that he would get a college degree when he made the decision to leave Davidson College early. The film will explore Curry sticking to that promise as he juggled the highs and lows in his professional NBA career. Curry received his Bachelor of Arts in Sociology degree from Davidson College in 2022, thirteen years after leaving to join the NBA after the 2008 season.

The world premiere of Stephen Curry: Underrated will take place on Monday, January 23 during an in-person screening at Park City's Eccles Theatre.
