Forest Whitaker’s new Stephon Marbury doc is all about redemption

Forest Whitaker says the new documentary he produced on notorious former Knicks player Stephon Marbury, “A Kid From Coney Island,” is about redemption.

At a BAM premiere, Whitaker told us: “I do relate to Stephon’s story . . . he did greatness, he worked hard. He rose again as a phoenix, really, and he came back in a beautiful way, and he lets people believe and know that they can come back.”

LA native Whitaker grew up as a Lakers fan. NBA star Kevin Durant exec produced the project.
