In 1946, Jackie Robinson is a Negro League baseball player who never takes racism lying down. Branch Rickey is a Major League team executive with a bold idea. Rickey recruits Robinson for the Brooklyn Dodgers to break the unspoken color line as the first modern African American Major League player. As both anticipate, this proves a major challenge for Robinson and his family as they endure unrelenting racist hostility on and off the field, from player and fan alike. As Jackie struggles against his nature to endure such abuse without complaint, he finds allies and hope where he least expects it. And lets his bat, basestealing and love of the game do his talking. Winner of the Heartland Truly Moving Picture Award. A strong cast with Chadwick Boseman, Harrison Ford, Lucas Black and Nicole Beharie.
