I haven't read the book (don't feel like giving Joe Posnanski any money), but from what I've read Posnanski is way too generous to Paterno. He paints a picture of this nice old man whose only crime was wanting to give people the benefit of the doubt (conveniently leaving out that you can't give the benefit of the doubt to both perp and victim). I don't have much hope for this film.
