||Synopsis: In 1946, Jackie Robinson is a Negro League baseball player who never takes racism lying down. Branch Rickey is a Major League team executive with a bold idea. To that end, Rickey recruits Robinson to break the unspoken color line as the first modern African American Major League player. As both anticipate, this proves a major challenge for Robinson and his family as they endure unrelenting racist hostility on and off the field, from player and fan alike. As Jackie struggles against his nature to endure such abuse without complaint, he finds allies and hope where he least expects it. Written by Kenneth Chisholm ([email protected])

I'm a middle-aged black man now and sometimes I wonder if young people
I was born in Richmond, VA, and I'm 1 (ONE) generation removed from
It is because of this that I was FLOORED by the performance of these
young actors. Chadwick Boseman & Nicole Beharie did a magnificent job
portraying the grace and courage of the Robinsons.
I couldn't have done it. Boseman has an UNCANNY resemblance to Jackie,
and his performance was so visceral that it proved to me that I
couldn't have done it.
I wouldn't have had the courage to stand up to racism by NOT fighting
back. I wouldn't have had the patience to bide my time until folks
decided it was time to see me as being more than sub-human. I
absolutely wouldn't have taken the risk of playing a game while people
threatened my wife and child.
When Jackie finally got angry enough to smash his bat against a wall,
that was the ONLY thing I could relate to - then to realize he had to
go back out there because it was about MORE than just him - I was
flabbergasted by his courage.
This is more than a film about baseball. The nuances like watching
people in second class seating still turning out to support Robinson in
full-on "Sunday church service" dress was poignant to me.
This movie ain't just about Jackie.
My mom is from New York, and she was 7 years old when Jackie joined the
Dodgers. She remembers this clearly.
It's obvious why you (as I did) would take your kids to see this film
as it shows what happened and how far we've come. For me, it shows what
other people did FOR ME that I was incapable of doing for myself.
This film has some corny parts to it - like most films of this ilk, it
sanitizes some things and does tie a nice bow on some issues glossed
over in the retelling...
..that doesn't mean it's not a darned good film.
I'm pretty cynical these days. It's not often that I watch a film with
a lump in my throat the whole time. I am indebted to the young actors
who portrayed the people of my grandparents' generation with style,
class and urgency.
I will own this film when it becomes available and that date can't come
