Moneyball (Bennett Miller – 2011) B-

It’s a good fun and well made film with an excellent performance by Brad Pitt. It happens to center around baseball, but it’s really the story of a team’s General Manager. We don’t see this too often. We get more of a look behind the scenes as to how teams are built and dismantled and how players are chosen, traded and fired. The script is very good. It succeeded in making a person like me who really does not care for baseball care about the GM, his assistant and the Oakland A’s.
