Product description

Product Description

Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill and Philip Seymour Hoffman star in this baseball drama co-written by 'The Social Network' (2010) screenwriter Aaron Sorkin. Based on real events in 2002, the film follows the unconventional tactics employed by Billy Beane (Pitt), general manager of the cash-strapped Oakland Athletics baseball team, to rebuild his club after losing a few key players to the Major League. Beane enlists the services of Yale economics graduate Peter Brand (Hill) to devise an unorthodox player selection system based on a sophisticated statistical analysis of each player's skills. As Billy and Peter start to build their team based on computer-generated data rather than the traditional scouting methods, they meet with resistance from old hands such as team manager Art Howe (Hoffman). But when the club begins a winning streak with its roster of inexpensive 'wild card' players, the naysayers are forced to admit that the scheme appears to be working.

From Amazon.co.uk

It's amazing that Moneyball makes baseball statistics seem fascinating--but that's because it's not really a movie about numbers, and it's not really a movie about baseball, either. It's about what drives people to take risks--in this instance, Billy Beane (played by Brad Pitt), general manager of the Oakland A's, who's just had his best players poached by teams that can afford to pay a lot more. Fed up with how money twists the game, he listens to Peter Brand (Jonah Hill), who persuades him that certain players are being undervalued for trivial reasons--that statistics reveal hidden strengths that could, when used in the right combinations, produce a winning season. Beane takes Brand's advice, then has to fight everyone else around him to follow it through. Moneyball skillfully takes the audience into Beane's psyche. Pitt is in excellent form; it's an understated but magnetic performance, the kind that rarely wins awards but should. Pitt has the physical presence of a former athlete and vividly expresses the mind of a man who's never achieved success but isn't ready to give up. Director Bennett Miller (Capote) shapes the supporting cast (Hill, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Robin Wright, and others less recognisable but just as solid) as carefully as Beane shapes his team. Miller has a few flashy (and highly effective) moments of sound manipulation and editing, but Moneyball is carried by its superb performances. --Bret Fetzer

Moneyball is a brilliant film, and the one thing the yanks are good at, and that is making sports films.

This film is based on a true story about a failing baseball team. Jonah hill plays the part of a yale number cruncher, I have seen a few films with Jonah hill in and to tell you the truth he is not my cup tea but his acting in this film was very good. The late Philip Seymour Hoffman was his normal brilliant self, but I must say for me anyway this has been brad pitt at his best, if not his best part I have seen him in.

What I loved about the film was the amazing live footage of the winning run, which just added to the true events. Oh and the song brad pitt's daughter sang was just lovely.

Winning the world series of Baseball is kind of like winning the world series of cheese chasing; both are sports that are only really played in one country so the world doesn’t really care. However, the rest of the world has come to care about sports such as baseball because we watch so many American films, some of which are about the ball of base. ‘Moneyball’ is the true story of Billy Beane and his running of the Oakland A’s; he took them to an unprecedented winning run by hiring players that were forgotten elsewhere and getting the best out of them. To do this he needed Peter Brand, a talented statistician whose theory was that you can make a team better by playing the odds.

Statistics, freakonomics, baseball, not really that promising a mix on paper, but director Bennett Miller has imbued both a sense of realism and tension to the film that lifts it above the usual sports fare. As someone who knows little about the fortunes of the A’s, the conclusion was a surprise for me and this really added to the thrills. Brad Pitt is ably helped by an impressive cast; finally someone has been able to harness his almost sleeping style of acting in a way that works; he actually pulls his weight here. Jonah Hill is also good as Brand; ably playing the geeky mathematician who hitches is horse to Beane’s wagon.

In a way it is not the direction or the acting that makes ‘Moneyball’ such a compelling film, but the system itself. It suggests that just because you are not the elite does not mean you cannot be a winner. The way in which Miller weaves the theories into the film are natural and you never feel spoken directly too. There is a surprisingly large amount of drama to be found just in watching people having a new way of working forced upon them.

You don't have to be a baseball fan or a spreadsheets lover to enjoy Moneyball. The story of how an under-resourced team found a way to be smarter than their bigger and richer rivals has an appeal that works even if you're not sure what a strike is and aren't moved by the idea of someone pouring over data to find a different way of looking at things.

That is a large part of why Moneyball, the movie of Michael Lewsis's book about the Oakland A's baseball team, is such an enjoyable movie.

Add in some great acting, a script written by someone (West Wing's Aaron Sorkin) who values words rather than seeing them as placeholders between special effects, great editing of footage and a nicely judged music score and you have a wonderfully enjoyable movie. Even if you don't like baseball.

Often the extras on a DVD are of limited value, but in this case - save for the one that give you the chance to watch Brad Pitt sitting laughing for several minutes - the extras add greatly to the film, both in explaining the context and (in the case of the deleted scenes) rounding out the characters nicely.

Of course, being the film of a book there is the ultimate extra - the book itself. Don't think of one as a substitute for the other. If you enjoy one, dive into the other too.

Pitt rarely gets the accolades he deserves. This is a film about those brave enough to find another way. To look beyond the 'same' and not be afraid of what it reveals about themselves. It notionally has some baseball in it as well - bit it is not a sport movie. Jonah HIll is funny and terrfic as the sidekick data expert and the ensemble cast deliver warmth and believable turns. Including a chubby Chris Pratt.
