Moneyball DVD

| DVD

Oscar and BAFTA (2012) award nominated film, Moneyball, was directed by Bennett Miller and stars Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill. It follows the story of Oakland Athletic's manager Billy Beane (Pitt) as he desperately struggles to put together a winning baseball team for the 2002 season after his best players have been poached for opposing teams. He meets up with Peter Brand (Hill) and together they take a huge risk and use Brand's cleverly devised unorthodox approach to player selection to put together their team. Using a statistical method (on base percentage - OBP - which hypothetically reveals players hidden talents) they are able to overcome their limited finances and prepare for the coming season. Despite criticism coming at them from all directions and some early disappointment they manage to conquer many of their problems proving that their determination and unconventional approach has the capacity to achieve success.

Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill and Philip Seymour Hoffman star in this baseball drama co-written by 'The Social Network' (2010) screenwriter Aaron Sorkin. Based on real events in 2002, the film follows the unconventional tactics employed by Billy Beane (Pitt), general manager of the cash-strapped Oakland Athletics baseball team, to rebuild his club after losing a few key players to the Major League. Beane enlists the services of Yale economics graduate Peter Brand (Hill) to devise an unorthodox player selection system based on a sophisticated statistical analysis of each player's skills. As Billy and Peter start to build their team based on computer-generated data rather than the traditional scouting methods, they meet with resistance from old hands such as team manager Art Howe (Hoffman). But when the club begins a winning streak with its roster of inexpensive 'wild card' players, the naysayers are forced to admit that the scheme appears to be working.
