My 2013 Movies: 42 (2013, at the theatre)
You’ll find nothing extraordinary here; you’ll find no surprises or conflicts that are more than skin-deep. You’ll find serviceable, occasionally community-theatre-like performances*, a thoughtful yet superficial biopic treatment that neither discourages discourse nor provokes it.
But what you will find is a rather perfect movie to bring two** of your sons to so that they can learn something rather simple and meaningful about the world, and the sport they love.
And that made it worth it.

** if you’ve been paying attention, you may remember that I have three sons. My oldest 1) was performing in a choral concert when the rest of us went to the movies and - more importantly - 2) could not possibly be dragged to a movie about baseball.
