Let's see if the 'bright lights' shine favorably on physical therapy.
Queen Latifah is signing on to play in a Hollywood movie about a physical therapist falling in love.
Queen Latifah has played some authoritative roles: Matron "Mama" Morton in 'Chicago' and Charlene Morton in 'Bringing Down the House'.
She seems likely to bring a strong voice to the role of a physical therapist helping to rehabilitate a basketball player.
The fact that the basketball player is her patient raises some concerns.
Let's hope the 'Cinderella tale' is a serious affair, and not a Tinseltown romp, where Queen Latifah's character considers carefully her professional responsibilities and legal liabilities when involving herself romantically with a patient.
Can we trust Hollywood?
What do you think?
Probably, physical therapists could organize a letter writing campaign to the producers of the new Queen Latifah movie (set to begin in May 2009) that would raise the issue of physical therapists professional responsibility.
Let's shine a bright light of our own in making this movie.
