A critical and commercial hit from TIFF’s 2011 lineup, Moneyball has officaily entered the canon of “underdog” films. The film relays the tale of Oakland Athletic’s general manager, Billy Beane, who fought against all odds to put together a team of unlikely heroes. Well made, sharply written and interesting even to non-sports fans – you won’t want to miss Moneyball!
Directed by Bennett Miller. Rated PG, 133 min.
