Opening: September 23rd
One of the best movies of the year. Goes inside baseball with Brad Pitt at his live-wire best playing Billy Beane, the Oakland As general manager who put together a team on a budget by using a computer wiz (Jonah Hill) to help draft his players. In a no-joke role, Hill is a revelation. Director Bennett Miller, up at bat for the first time since 2005's Capote, hits all the bases in a homerun script by Steve Zaillian and Aaron Sorkin. Forget knowing baseball. Moneyball is about any business that lets greed rule its destiny. Dynamite stuff.
