Planning a movie night? You could watch one of our neighbors on the big screen. “Nowitzki: The Perfect Shot” is playing in select theaters.

The documentary investigates how Preston Hollow resident Dirk Nowitzki went from second league German basketball player to NBA superstar. Nowitzki’s relationship with his coach, the enigmatic Holger Geschwindner, gets special attention in the film. Geschwindner, who is also a scientist, takes a methodical approach to his sport.

“Holger’s all about the science,” Mavericks owner Mark Cuban says. “You know, he wants to break though and solve this quadratic equation that provides the best solution to shooting the basketball or moving the basketball.”
