Moneyball tells the story of the 2002 season of the Oakland Athletics,a team that rose to notoriety because of its low payroll and unorthodoxplayer selection. Billy Beane (Brad Pitt), a former player turnedgeneral manage, grows tired with the ancient, inefficient ways of thegame he has committed his entire life to. When a transaction goes awryhe stumbles across Peter Brand (Jonah Hill), a Yale, economics graduatewho believes he has a system to rating players based on numbers.<br><br>Billy and Peter begin trading, signing, and grooming the team based ondata, not scouting, something that other members of the team are notfond of, including Art Howe (Philip Seymour Hoffman), the team&#x27;smanager. Billy and Peter&#x27;s system defies current baseball logic, butwhen the club starts to win games with players like Scott Hatteberg(Chris Pratt), David Justice (Stephen Bishop), and Chad Bradford (CaseyBond), the eyes of the country turn to Oakland, where only seeing isbelieving.<br><br>What happened in Oakland back in &#x27;02 was incredible. It shouldn&#x27;t havehappened if you ask the right people, and other people will tell you itmeans nothing. Well, it did mean something it has changed the waypeople think about the game for good. You couldn&#x27;t just go out and lookat a kid to see if he would be a star or not. There were more stats toconsider than home runs, strikeouts, and batting average. The game wasexpanding and becoming more and more a battle of logic.<br><br>The film&#x27;s structure is centered mostly on Billy Beane, but the mostexciting parts for me were about the system. Writer Aaron Sorkin, who afew months back accepted a slew of awards for his screenplay The SocialNetwork, tosses out jargon that baseball fanatics go crazy for. For thegeneral audience, that&#x27;s where Billy helps out. Peter explains thesystem and has to break it down more for Beane (i.e. the audience) soeverybody on screen and in the seats is on the same page.<br><br>Pitt&#x27;s portrayal of Beane won me over. He completely caught me offguard. I know Pitt can act but I remember him for performances thatwere very complex on the outside. Aldo Raine (Inglourious Basterds)with his pronounces chin, squinty eyes, and thick accent. BenjaminButton (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) who grew younger as he gotolder. Jeffrey Goines (12 Monkeys) who couldn&#x27;t sit still let alonefocus on one subject in a conversation. Yes, he was nominated for allthese performances, but in a performance like this there is somethingbubbling under the surface. All of his characters to an extent havesomething going on underneath, only this character, Billy Beane, is sonormal and calm on the outside, yet when he is alone we can see painand frustration.<br><br>His supporting cast of Hill, Hoffman, and the slew of ball players andcolleagues, help turn this baseball team into the world of OaklandAthletics. Hill and Hoffman especially play perfect compliments toPitt&#x27;s sunny exterior. Hill is quiet, timid, and very smart. Hoffman iscold, weathered, and stubborn. Pitt is able to play off of bothtemperaments and make their scenes together pop off the screen.<br><br>The one thing that this movie has going for it is the lack of actualaction on the diamond. There are some great scenes of actual baseball,one at bat by Hatteberg in particular struck a chord with me, but forthe most part the action is behind the scenes. There is enough for asports junkie to get their fix and enough drama and with Beane and hisfamily to entice any average viewer into the theater. I can&#x27;t think ofmany target groups that wouldn&#x27;t find it interesting, except forchildren, due to language and complexity of some of the dialogue. Allin all this is one movie that will please a lot of people, and moreimportantly a lot of different people, sort of like The Blind Side,only the movie is actually really good.

I have another rare chance to catch a film more than a day before itsnational release. Usually when this happens there&#x27;s a horde of folksqueued up. When the doors to the theatre open, phones are sequestered,and a rush is put on to find prime seating. Those were movies starringa bunch of&#x85; well less than household names. Surely a sneak to see aBrad Pitt movie would be even more chaotic. Unfortunately the waningpopularity of America&#x27;s pastime is as much of a deterrent as a moviestar and free entertainment are agents of attraction. <br><br>Billy Beane (Brad Pitt) is a former major leaguer turned generalmanager of the Oakland A&#x27;s. After losing in the playoffs to theYankees, the A&#x27;s lose their stars to free agency. Billy is tasked withrebuilding despite a payroll that leaves the A&#x27;s trailing thecompetition. <br><br>While going through the usual motions, Billy happens by Pete Brand(Jonah Hill), an economist who may have found a way to scout baseballwith the efficiency the A&#x27;s need. The two delve in head first, anddespite some tough outings they never back down.<br><br>Pitt is at the top of his game. As an everyman&#x97;or at least one thatisn&#x27;t played up as wealthy, a man struggling to keep hisjob&#x97;frustration is clearly seen in Pitt&#x27;s face. Pitt brings humanity tothe ominous job of a general manager. Flashbacks of his stint in &#x22;theshow&#x22; surmise his entire life, be it his divorce or relationship withhis daughter Casey (Kerris Dorsey).<br><br>Moneyball is not the action-packed sports outing one may be expecting.Director Bennett Miller spends very little time focusing on the game ofbaseball, or even the personalities of the players. Moneyball is amovie about management. Its deadpan, forthright approach is freshcompared to the typical underdog story filled with home runs and stolenbases. There&#x27;s no electrifying music or thrilling speeches, but theexcitement found in a phone call is realized as well as one couldimagine. I don&#x27;t think any actor other than Hill could pull of hisslowly clinched fist.<br><br>Like the good sports films, Moneyball shares a deeper meaning thansimply winning. Immediately the value of loyalty comes to mind. Thesports genre is changing, much like how the crew of this story changedtalent scouting. Just last year a movie rose up about the struggle tomanage a boxer, and now here&#x27;s the struggle to manage a team.

It has long been said that professional sports are more a game ofpolitics than an actual game. Major League Baseball is not just a gameof money, but in &#x22;Moneyball&#x22; it&#x27;s a game of numbers versus a game ofpeople. It&#x27;s callousness at its highest when general managers tradeaway people as if they&#x27;re objects with little regard for them or theirfamily. Brad Pitt as Billy Beane, the GM of the Oakland As, seems totake that even further, treating people as if they are only numbers,and yet there was something refreshing and humanistic about the wholething.<br><br>It&#x27;s 2001 and Oakland has just lost to the New York Yankees in theplayoffs, not surprising, seeing as their payroll was 76 Milliondollars less. The humour of &#x22;Moneyball&#x22; starts in the off-season whenthe team can&#x27;t afford to keep their top players and Beane and hisexperienced scouts start tossing around some free agent ideas. One guyis no good because he frequents strip clubs too often, another guy isno good because his girlfriend is ugly, and on down the list they go.But then Beane meets Yale-educated, economics-, mathematics-, andcomputer-whiz, baseball fan, Peter Brand (Jonah Hill). He has noexperience and he doesn&#x27;t know these players. He doesn&#x27;t know if theystand funny or if they swing ugly. He only knows their stats and theirsalary. <br><br>A lot of people took offense to Beane&#x27;s approach of degrading playersdown to the sum total of their on-base percentage and runs-inpotential. But I liked it. Since the game of baseball isn&#x27;t changingany time soon and players will always just be elements that can helpwin games and make more money, why not view them as numbers rather thanas people with ugly girlfriends? Like Peter Brand, I like numbers. <br><br>It&#x27;s a movie about doing more with less, so I think we&#x27;re just supposedto ignore the irony that they needed an excessively high budget to makeit. In fact, it cost Sony Pictures more money to make this movie thanit cost the Oakland A&#x27;s to field their entire team for a season. Ohwell, only one lesson for Hollywood at a time, and I still liked themovie.<br><br>For a movie about people trying to change the game of baseball, it&#x27;sonly fitting that they are changing the sports genre. This isn&#x27;t aboutthe team and how many games they&#x27;re going to win. As in all cases, theywin some and they lose some. And we really only meet one player, therest are just names thrown in the air. The movie is about Billy Beane,a real person, and a multi-dimensional character. At first he realizesthat he is going to have to play the game with more than just money,and then after he makes it about numbers too, he finds a balancedstatistical and personal concept.<br><br>&#x22;Moneyball&#x22; says that the game is about money, but the movie is aboutpeople. Writer Aaron Sorkin knows how to write people, and as evidencedby &#x22;The Social Network&#x22; (2010), he also knows how to turncomputer-programming into riveting cinema. We find humour in theleast-expected of places, we find heart in the least-expected ofpeople, and &#x27;Moneyball&#x22; gives us a completely enjoyable movie thatbecomes so much more than numbers.
