Moneyball

True baseball drama about Billy Beane's desperate, unorthodox methods as general manager of the Oakland Athletics - the major league's poorest club. Stars Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill and Philip Seymour Hoffman. From the director of Capote, based on the book Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game.

Frustrated with the team's lack of money and continuously losing talent to far wealthier clubs, Beane (Pitt) - a failed former player with a growing hatred of losing - figures he needs a unique approach to compete. He sees the light in theories championed by Peter Brand (Hill), a young Yale economics major, new to baseball. To the chagrin of the club's traditionalists, Beane and Brand attempt to create a more competitive team, on bargain bin prices, thorough analysis and a new sabermetric approach to scouting players.

Winner of Best Actor (Pitt) at the Boston Society of Film Critics Awards 2011. Winner of Best Screenplay and Best Actor (Pitt) at the New York Film Critic Circle Awards 2011.

Takes all this seemingly dry, dusty, inside-baseball stuff and turns it into the kind of all-too-rare pleasurable Hollywood diversion that gives you a contact high.

A smart, intense and moving film that isn't so much about sports as about the war between intuition and statistics.

A chest-swelling story about second chances and flipping a finger up (even a giant foam one) to The Man.

The entertaining banter between Pitt and Jonah Hill isn't quite enough to make such an insular world compelling.
