A rousing and agreeable movie that resurrects a small but important episode in baseball history that parallels the larger history of the nation.
Tells an inspiring story, unknown or forgotten by many, while bringing the past to life and illuminating issues that persist today.
A model of what a largely talking-heads documentary should be, with on-camera testimonials and lots of film clips that offer layers of context.
Filled with delightful sequences.
Scrupulously made and deeply affectionate.
Aviva Kempner's warm and intelligent mash note to a man who clearly deserved it.
If there's a flaw, it's that Kempner has fashioned more a hagiography than true biography.
Hits one out of the park.
Offers insights from a host of former players.
