A tremendous hidden gem. This film caught my attention several years ago when I first read about it and I finally had the chance to view it. I will watch any film that has the Red Sox involved someway or another. Although I was not alive at the time of the Sox 1986 World Series loss to the Mets this captured all of the first account descriptions I’ve been told by my elders. The whole film takes place during the day of Game 6 of the 1986 World Series. Michael Keaton plays a fictitious prestigious playwright that has a diehard passion for the Boston Red Sox. He skips opening night of his latest play to watch Game 6. Robert Downey Jr. plays a highly regarded play critic who sends playwrights to their “grave” with his deadly reviews. Great performances by both Keaton and Downey Jr. This film captures the essence of hope in the human mind. You always hope for the best but plan for the worst. Everyone has to set themselves up for the idea that they can fail and this film portrays that. I recommend to anyone baseball fan or not.
