Rated PG-13 · 133 minutes · 2011

Moneyball is one of the best baseball movies ever made—even though very little of the physical game is played within it. It’s the story of Oakland Athletics general manager Billy Beane, and how he used computers instead of money to build a championship-level baseball team while teams in bigger markets outspent him … really outspent him. Brad Pitt plays Beane in a funny, understated and savvy performance. Jonah Hill is also very good as a statistician who helps Beane paste together a team that essentially changed the way baseball teams are built. Sure, director Bennett Miller and his screenwriters cut a few corners and Hollywood-ize this already crazy story, but history does tell us that the A’s, under Beane, have put some pretty amazing teams on the field with paltry budgets.
