Rated PG-13 · 133 minutes · 2011

Not your typical baseball movie. Director Bennett Miller’s thoughtful screen version of Michael Lewis’ enormously influential profile of Billy Beane and the 2002 Oakland A’s rightly pays much more attention to Beane’s revolutionary baseball strategy/business model than to on-field heroics. In that respect it’s more like The Social Network than Field of Dreams, which is a good thing. Brad Pitt, already jock-like, is terrific as Beane, with Jonah Hill as his assistant and disciple (a composite character) and Philip Seymour Hoffman, miscast as manager Art Howe. Moneyball sells the sizzle, not the meat. Screenplay by Steven Zaillian and Aaron Sorkin, from a screen story by Stan Chervin adapted from Lewis’ bestseller. (133 min.)
