Moneyball was a film made for all ages and all baseball fans. It told the story of Billy Beane after his 2001 Athletics lost key members of their team including Johnny Damon and Jason Giambi. The movie took us inside his world through Brad Pitt, who did a marvelous job portraying Beane. The story is meant to make people believe in miracles, but this is more than that. It comes from a true story that one would be crazy in thinking had any validity. Moneyball is the ultimate feel-good movie of the year with superb acting and vast knowledge of the basis of the story of the Oakland A's of 2002. 3 and a half out of 4 stars.
