I like Clint Eastwood. I enjoyed this movie very much. It’s not just a baseball movie.
Gus Lobel (Clint Eastwood) has been a top baseball scout for decades, but age has caught up with him. He refuses to be benched for what could be the final innings of his career. The Atlanta Braves’s front office is questioning his judgement, especially with a hot batting phenom on deck for the draft. Enter Gus’s estranged daughter, Mickey (Amy Adams), an ambitious attorney on the partner track who joins him on a scouting trip, jeopardizing her own career to save his. Justin Timberlake also stars as a rival scout with his sights on a career in the announcer’s booth – and his eyes on Mickey – in an entertaining tale “filled with heart, humour and fantastic acting.”

I couldn’t agree more. A great movie. 8/10
