The new film 42 tells the life story of Jackie Robinson, the first African-American player to play in Major League Baseball, and how his incredible athleticism, consummate professionalism, and character helped change perceptions of race in America, and contributed to the rise of the Civil Rights Movement.
So far, reviews for the film are good, praising Chadwick Boseman’s performance as the iconic Robinson and Harrison Ford’s supporting role as Brooklyn Dodgers’ manager Branch Rickey. (Check out Screen Rant’s review of 42.)
