Moneyball is based on true events, and provides valuable insight regarding the on-field and off-field dynamics of the Oakland A's Major League Baseball Club. This film has the capacity to engage viewers who are familiar or unfamiliar with the sport, based on the avant-garde approach to managing resources that is utilised by Billy Beane (Brad Pitt), which any person in business can appreciate. The narrative is also inspiring, as the viewer is presented with what seems like impossible circumstances for the A's to be successful, yet through innovative thinking high performance is achieved. Brad Pitt provides a solid performance, as does the entire cast, and the viewer is entertained with plenty of humour and quality drama. This movie is a win for baseball, as it has the capacity to introduce new people to the game from all over the world. Please refer to this link to purchase a copy of Moneyball.
