    Synopsis


    The Perfect Game
    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

      Once in a while I find a gem of a movie. I realize that it may be difficult to find actors that truly represent the authentic heritage of the real characters, but at least the actors that were chosen did a great job of bringing the characters to life. I love "underdog" stories and what makes this one so great is that it was based on a true story. It wasn't all a "fairy tale" story, but it was great how they perservered and won the hearts of a nation. A worthwhile story to be told!

      This is the BEST movie. I saw a sneak preview in Florida. It is one of the few movies that all ages will like and there's nothing really bad or offensive in it. My boys play little league, so I of course loved the plot. But it is a story about overcoming the odds and becoming a better person. When I saw it, there was not a dryeye in the house at the end of the movie. And it was not just the moms!

      Wonderful true story about the first non US team to ever play in the Little League World Series in South Williamsport. A small team from Monterey Mexico coached by an ex-club house attendant of the St Louis Cardinals against all odds makes it past playoffs and into the World Series. A must watch for any Baseball fan and advocate for the underdogs.

      Fun, family friend movie about baseball and kids. The documentary like effects and the 1950s era like shots made me feel like I was in the movie itself!
