MzTeachuh: Someone Brought a Smile to Your Baby Face: Mother and Child by Renoir Maybe someone still does. Mothers' Day is Sunday, May 12.
Personally, I'm glad to be in the theatre and not in the stands. Having myself observed racism first hand, it would surely ruin a nice day at the ballpark, to say the least. It is difficult enough experiencing vitriolic racism in a movie based on real experiences.
|Sportswriter Wendell Smith (Andre Holland)|
|This is the actual Jackie Robinson.|
|Rachel Robinson (Nicole Beharie)|
baseball action; I really love it, being a baseball fan. The actors caught the real people. Rachel Robinson (actress Nicole Beharie) is intelligent, beautiful, educated, classy. A girl from Pasadena, Cal., thrust into old school racism. Harrison Ford's character, Branch Rickey, keeps saying he brought Robinson into the organization for the money--is that really so? Ford gives a layered performance to a complex man.
Baseball managers had wished they could integrate the game for decades. Check out Ken Burns' documentary "Baseball," free Netflix trial.

Will this movie help racism to recede? Will this movie create more resiliency and dignity for folks young and old who suffer injustice? I hope so. I pray so.
If you wish, there is a 1950 film called "The Jackie Robinson Story," (The Jackie Robinson Story http://www.youtube.com/movie/the-jackie-robinson-story) starring Jackie himself, that includes more background. Free on youtube. How cool is that?
