Synopsis

Uplifting biopic of Jackie Robinson (Chadwick Boseman) - the Brooklyn Dodgers' legendary Number 42 who was the first black player to take on the institutional racism of American baseball. Harrison Ford plays Dodgers' audacious general manager Branch Rickey, the guiding light behind Robinson's rise. Director Brian Helgeland (writer of LA Confidential and Mystic River) never loses sight of the fact that it was Robinson's on-field talent that broke most barriers, authentically recreating the atmosphere and excitement of major league clashes in the 1940s.
