|Brad Pitt as Billy Beane in Moneyball|
This weekend we watched Moneyball, starring Brad Pitt. I really enjoyed seeing him in a dramatic role, no goofing around, not playing up his rugged good looks.
It was an interesting film for a non-sports fan like me. I have no clue how baseball works. The trading of players was so cut-throat and reminded me so much of my kids with their trading cards. It was sad really. Simply commodities in the machine that is profit-driven.
Apart from learning something new about baseball I was fascinated by the application of economics to the game. Yep, I'm a geek!
I can't say whether I recommend this film. I can't rave about it but it was definitely entertaining enough for a Sunday night. No sex, violence or any bad words either!
