William Dear (Timerider: The Adventure of Lyle Swann) helms the period baseball drama The Perfect Game, a cinematization of real-life events that transpired in 1957. Clifton Collins Jr. stars as Cesar Faz, a 1950s baseball player who immigrated from Mexico to the U.S. with the intent of making it as a Major League player. After encountering racism and hostility that stand squarely in the way of his success, Faz high-tails it south of the border and decides instead to coach a Little League team, ultimately guiding it all the way to the Little League World Series. The film co-stars Emilie de Ravin (Lost); W. William Winokur authored the script. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
Home Run Showdown
A pint-sized athlete with a major league dream sets his sights on impressing his imprisoned father, and gets some much-needed help from the last place he expected. Twelve-year-old Lori (Kyle Kirk) has just lost his mother, and his father is in prison. To make matters worse, he's just moved to a new town and he doesn't have any friends. Though Little League tryouts offer a glimmer of hope, disappointment sets in when he fails to make the cut. Meanwhile, the Major League Home Run Derby is on the horizon, and if Lori could just manage to get on TV perhaps his convict dad would have a reason to be proud. And with a little help from athletic tomboy Fassi (Emma-Lee Hess) and massive misfit Tanker (Brandon Balog), he might just make it happen. Dean Cain, Matthew Lillard, and Annabeth Gish co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
