An aging baseball scout is going through many problems, he’s old and his eyes are going. Through a course of events, he winds up taking his grown daughter along with what could be his final scouting trip.
The acting is quite good, especially from Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams and Justin Timberlake. Yes, Timberlake did a good job. I’m not a big baseball fan, but I think other non-baseball fans can enjoy the film’s other issues, like a father who never really connected to his daughter. Or giving up what you love because you can no longer do it, despite your stubborn attempts to continue. The film is also interesting to those who are baseball fans.
The film is quite long and a bit boring at times. The length didn’t really bother me until about 1hr and 10 minutes when the story seemed to be getting wrapped up. Long story short, the movie didn’t end there and there was a short lull before the story got good again.
