FEATURE FRIDAY | MONEYBALL

FEATURE FRIDAY | MONEYBALL

Welcome to another installment of Feature Friday, in which we share with you some of our favorite Movies & TV shows! When we first were dating one of the things we bonded over was chatting about some of our favorite shows. We’ve found that is the same for a lot of our couples too! So, every now and then, we will showcase a different movie or show and share some of the reasons why we recommend it and the things that we really like about it. So be sure to tune in, check out some of our favorites, and maybe even turn it into a date night with your fiance! Make dinner or order in and tune in to watch one of our favorites.

This week: Moneyball

Yes, it’s time to talk some more about the work of Aaron Sorkin, this time in the form of his 2011 Oscar-nominated screenplay for Moneyball – a biopic about Billy Beane, a failed Major League Baseball player who became the General Manager of the low-budget Oakland Athletics and used advanced mathematics and computer analysis to assemble a team without any superstars. Sounds riveting, right?

It actually is. For one thing, the numbers are really just a plot device. The story is about Beane’s (played by Brad Pitt, also nominated for an Oscar for the role) feud with upper management (and on-the-field management) over their inability to afford to keep their best players, who keep being signed by the super-power teams like the Yankees and Red Sox. He has to use his ability to read people (and, sometimes, pit them against each other) and his newfound trust in Peter Brand (Jonah Hill, who ALSO got an Oscar nomination) to convince the powers-that-be that they don’t need to have the biggest payroll or the most famous players to win.

And, boy, do they ever win. This is, of course, based on the true story of the 2002 Athletics’ season, the year the team lost their three most famous players, but – via the magic of Moneyball – managed to put together a better record than the previous year, including a twenty-game winning streak which was the longest in American League history until the Cleveland Indians broke it this past season.

Keep an eye out for Chris Pratt as catcher-turned-first baseman Scott Hatteberg, three years before Guardians of the Galaxy, the Lego Movie, and Jurassic World turned him into a mega-star.

    I really enjoyed this movie! Of course, I’m a huge baseball fan, so that probably has something to do with it as well….
