Jackie Robinson. A black man in white baseball”. A quote by Branch Ricky (Harrison Ford) which sums up the plot of “42”. If your worried about another movie focusing on the game of baseball, you’ll be happy to know baseball is only a 42 breakdownsmall part of this dynamic movie.  The writers primarily focus on the challenges Jackie Robinson (Chadwick Boseman) faces while on the road to becoming a professional baseball player.

Harrison Ford delivers one of his best performances yet. Filling the role of Branch Ricky, a team executive who leaves the baseball industry speechless when he signs Jackie Robinson, a black man to the Brooklyn Dodgers, a white man team.

42 receives a 10/10, for its excellent plot, out standing acting, and the writers ability to focus on the story of Jackie Robinson and not the game of baseball itself. This was truly an inspirational, feel-good movie!

42 is now available on DVD & Blu-ray, and will be on my Top Picks list!
