CLEVELAND (AP) - LeBron James has gone from the gold-medal stand to the silver screen.

The Cavaliers' megastar, fresh off helping the U.S. basketball team win gold at the Beijing Olympics, will be at the Toronto International Film Festival this weekend for the debut of "More Than A Game," a documentary chronicling his rise to stardom.

The film depicts how he and four childhood friends overcame long odds to win a national championship in high school.

It combines footage taken during James' career at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School in nearby Akron, along with one-on-one interviews by writer/director Kris Belman, home videos, and personal family photographs.
