42

Last night Matt and I went to the eat-in theater at AMC to see 42, we love us a good baseball movie! Something I love about certain movies is that I feel a small sense that I have learned something I didn't know before......and in this case it was the story of Jackie Robinson. Jackie Robinson is a American legend.
Honestly this movie is kinda slow, no real crescendo but that wasn't the point of this movie. With that being said we both really enjoyed this movie.
I have had a few people with kids ask about this movie since it is PG-13 and that is solely due to the use of racial slurs. So be prepared to have a talk with your children and actually this might be the conversation starter you need to discuss something so important with your children.
This movie is inspirational plain and simple. I loved the cast and I loved how at the end of the movie they shared the stories of what happened to all the Brooklyn Dodgers present day.

The movie was primarily shot in the town I live in (chattanooga, tn) and I know several people in the movie! I've not seen it yet but I hope to soon. Im glad you seemed to have liked it :) Have a happy Saturday! xoxo - Hope

Oh I am so happy to hear it was good! My son has read biographies on all the legendary baseball greats and he can't wait to see it. Have a great rest of your weekend!
