The general manager (Brad Pitt) of the Oakland A's goes against the grain to assemble a (hopefully) pennant-winning team by figuring out a way to draft players more cheaply and effectively.

Why It's Worth Seeing: What sounds like a yawn-inducing behind-the-scenes sports film is, as scripted by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network) and Steven Zaillian (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo), quite energetic and riveting. The movie knocks it out of the park, with both Jonah Hill -- yes, that Jonah Hill -- and Pitt, both of whom got Golden Globe nominations, turning in career-best performances.
