42 - Brian Helgeland

This film tells the story of Jackie Robinson with the Brooklyn Dodgers and how he broke the color barrier. Not a bad film, but oddly didn't have the emotional impact as such a power story should have. Maybe because I can't stand sports. Apparently, Robinson was not actually the first black player in major league baseball! Something I learned--from all places--in one of those reading comprehension passages in the GRE! Read about it, without any questions to answer, here.
