    Though I know almost nothing about baseball I thought it would be boring, but it wasn't, it was great and didn't prevent it to be inspiring. Doesn't matter if you know and like the game or not, it's not all about baseball, it's also about "adapt or die".
    Reminded me of The Social Network. Also liked the realistic ending.

    Great drama, very emotional, effective through out, even if you knew nothing about the events that are being portrayed (had to Wikipedia the man midway to see what he had done). The movie is carried with brio by the two main actors. So much so that Philip Seymour Hoffman is almost invisible, in his taciturn role. We need more original dramas like this one, that are neither crass nor cynical. Just a good story, well told and perfectly delivered. 7 years 2 months ago
