The story of Jackie Robinson (Chadwick Boseman), the legendary baseball player who broke Major League Baseball's color barrier when he joined the roster of the Brooklyn Dodgers.
He faced racial discrimination from his fellow players and from the public in general, but sporting the number 42, he went on to play in six World Series. His involvement in Major League Baseball helped bring an end to racial segregation in the sport.
Great movie, touching and heart warming. It will make you laugh a little, cheer a lot and even cry.
I almost forgot how racist this country is until this reminded me again. I really don"t think its gotten any better. The movies depicts that life story in an incredible light. The only other movie that pissed me off because of the unrightousness was Brave Heart.
