Moneyball

What are you really worth?


Moneyball
In the 2002 American baseball season, the nation's lowest-salaried Major League Baseball team had a 20-game winning streak. However they began that same season with 11 losses in row. What happened between to turn them from losers to winners is what the film is about. It's not a traditional underdogs-to-champs like Hollywood normally churns out, but rather about the hard-nosed business of baseball, and how using statistics helped them pick a winning team. The film manages to appeal to critics and crowds alike.
