Seeing and Believing Episode 187: Steven Soderbergh's High Flying Bird and Joe Cornish's The Kid Who Would Be King Whether you like Sorkin-esque sports movies or kid-friendly Arthurian fantasy, we've got you covered this week. Steven Soderbergh's first Netflix film, High Flying Bird, follows a cunning sports agent as he shepherds a pro basketball rookie and his own career through an NBA lockout. Meanwhile, Joe Cornish's The Kid Who Would Be King offers a modern-day spin on the King Arthur myth, romping through London and the English countryside as a band of kids team up with Merlin to defeat King Arthur's age-old nemesis Morgana once and for all.
