42 Film Review: An Emotional Cinematic Home Run

It is sad to realize an American legend and a pioneer like Jackie Robinson has only had one film about his career put up on the big screen before 42.  It is a story that everyone needs to hear.  Robinson was not only an amazing athlete but he was a brave man trying to break down the institution of racism.  It is a heroic story, and 42 looks at the really hard first year in the Major Leagues.  You can find out about how well 42 captures this story in my latest film review for Collective Publishing.
