Story


Based on a true story, "Moneyball" is a movie for anybody who has ever dreamed of taking on the system.

Brad Pitt stars as Billy Beane, the general manager of the Oakland A's and the guy who assembles the team, who has an epiphany: all of baseball's conventional wisdom is wrong. Forced to reinvent his team on a tight budget, Beane will have to outsmart the richer clubs. The onetime jock teams with Ivy League grad Peter Brand (Jonah Hill) in an unlikely partnership, recruiting bargain players that the scouts call flawed, but all of whom have an ability to get on base, score runs, and win games.

It's more than baseball, it's a revolution - one that challenges old school traditions and puts Beane in the crosshairs of those who say he's tearing out the heart and soul of the game.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..rationalizing the game actually helped to humanize it, opening it up to players whose quirks had made them easy to dismiss..”
by Ann Hornaday [Washington Post]
“..it's not really a sports movie at all, but a tale of outsiders who defy conventional thinking and the institutions that fight them every step of the way..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]
“..the film gets many important things exactly right..”
by Joe Morgenstern [Wall Street Journal]
