Moneyball (dir. Bennett Miller) 2011

This film is about baseball. I like baseball. I enjoyed this film.
It is based on a true story, about Billy Beane, the man who supposedly took the romance out of baseball by putting his faith in computer generated statistics. However, this is a romantic film and he is a true romantic (just don’t expect any love scenes!).
It was nominated for 6 Academy Awards; this implies to me that it has wider appeal than just baseball fans.
It is an intelligent movie with a great script. Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill were both nominated for Oscars and it also has Philip Seymour Hoffman in the cast, so could be worth a watch for the acting alone.

  1. I love Aaron Sorkin’s writing, and it lent itself well to this world. The unlikely pairing of Pitt and Hill worked a treat. Incredibly story too. Nice piece. 🙂
