Baseball scout in the twilight years of his daughter's illness is caused by employment at the end of the journey.
I usually do not like movies about sports. I love sports movies just for sport. That being said, this film is not so much about baseball as it was the father and daughter relationship. She also talked about how technology has taken over the human element to search for players. This movie is the complete opposite Money Ball, where technology actually helps in team building. Gus Lobel (Clint Eastwood) is an aging scout for the Atlanta Braves who is struggling with his sight and front office have doubts about whether or not it is the job of spotting up and coming talent. Because of this pain, Gus is grumpy old man who actually adds a lot of humor to the film. His character reminded me of the kind of character that Eastwood played in Grand Torino. Mickey his daughter (Amy Adams) discovers that her father is having difficulty, reluctantly roll of the guardian and to follow his father's scouting adventure. By the way, she probably knows more about baseball than anyone else in the film. Johnny Flanagan (Justin Timberlake) is an ambitious sports announcer who was scouted by Guus years. The relationship that develops between Mickey (named for Mickey Mantle) and Johnny is fun to watch and provide insight Mickeys reluctance to develop a serious relationship with any man. Pete Klein (John Goodman) has an interface that brings together Mickey and Gus. I really liked his strong commitment and confidence to Gus. It was also good to see again Scott Eastwood (Billy Clarke) act with his father. They acted together in several films, and it's good to see them spending some family time together. I think all votes made this film definitely better and I'm sure it will attract young people to the theater. I do not think this film is utterly brilliant, but it was thoroughly entertaining. There were aspects of the film, which was quite predictable, but I expect to see it play out. Director Robert Lorenz can not hit out of the park (as he did with the million dollars), but I think it is a definite triple play. I suggest you do not sit on the bench and go out and see this movie. I give this film a green light.
