Moneyball

Brad Pitt plays the beleaguered general manager of the Oakland A's who, with the help of Jonah Hill's nerdy computer analyst, breaks all the rules of baseball. How? They recruits a winning team based on simple statistics, rather than high-paid heavy hitters. It sounds like it's aimed only at diehard sports fans, but screenwriters Steven Zaillian (Schindler's List) and Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network) craft a smart, scrappy, unexpectedly compelling dramedy that--like the people who inspired it--bucks convention. 133 minutes PG-13.
