I’ve always been on the fence about sports movies. Too often they teeter just a little too far over to the overly-inspirational-to-the-point-of-cheesiness side of the scale, and that’s something I just can’t stomach. With Moneyball, from what we can tell, it looks to be a different case. The film stars Brad Pitt as the general manager of the Oakland Athletics as he tries to revolutionize the way the business of baseball is done. Alongside Pitt are Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jonah Hill, Robin Wright, Stephen Bishop, Kathryn Morris and Chris Pratt. If that helluva cast isn’t enough to convince you, consider this: Capote’s director, Bennett Miller, helmed the flick and Aaron Sorkin penned the script with Steven Zaillian. As someone who’s recently gotten back into Sorkin’s short-lived comedy, Sports Night, seeing the scribe delve back into that world is a promising thought.
