What’s it about?
A baseball general manager who, faced with budgetary constraints, turns to a new statistical model of recruiting rather than the traditional scouting methods. Can he compete with the super-rich clubs on a shoe-string budget?
What did we think?
Moneyball is a enthralling baseball movie that’s barely about baseball. It’s an incredible true story of challenging the establishment and tradition and Brad Pitt (who bears an eery resemblance to Robert Redford here) is amazing. Wonderfully scripted (Aaron Sorkin) and acted, this is one of the movies of the year!
