Storyline

In 1946, Jackie Robinson is a Negro League baseball player who never takes racism lying down. Branch Rickey is a Major League team executive with a bold idea.

I loved this25 July 2013

Not sure how true to life the actual story is (im not a historian or big baseball enthusiast) but it seemed as though it would have been fairly on the mark, had great actors and story. Not one for sci-fi or action fans, unless baseball is your kind of action, I loved it though.
