Moneyball, a movie that featured Brad pitt, one would always love to see Brad in the shoes of Achilles and in the shoes of a person who spends seven years in Tibet…. but in this movie it was a completely different ballgame, Brad pitt portrayed the role of Billy Beane, baseball player turned general manager of “Oakland Athletics”. The movie is a true story based and Brad, scintillated in the movie throughout, it is a treat watching him as a shrewd general manager of a underdog baseball team.
The movie is about how a failed baseball player, with the help of of a Yale geek who don’t know the alphabets of baseball, but master of economics turn the game with their excellent judgmental skills and shrewd trade techniques. In the movie Brad says that he “hates losing more than he loves winning”
The movie revolves around Billie Bean, his genius Yale economics friends and his struggle to assemble a perfectly imperfect team with a very limited budget constraint, with his limited resources he tries to bring the best out of his players, he pulls out a miraculous 20 winning match streak with his team and he is hell bent to end the season with a win with championship, which he continues to try.
The movie leaves the audience spell bound by the protagonist’s iron will not to lose as a general manager, as a dad and as a person. The movie shows the struggle he fights, the hard decisions he takes and how he stands by them. The movie will give you a run for your money. Worth watch stuff if you want to take a fresh breathe away from routine stale movies.
