A daughter tries to remedy her dysfunctional relationship with her ailing father, a decorated baseball scout by helping him in a recruiting trip which could be his last.
I doubt it needs to be said that any movie with Clint Eastwood in it is going to be a good movie the man's career speaks for itself. This being one of my personal favorites and one of his best in my opinion.
There are a million reasons why I rated this film five stars and why I can sit down and watch this movie then hit the replay button just to watch it all over again without ever getting tired of it, and yes, I do think this was one of Timberlake and Adam's best roles as well.
I must give them credit because if it weren't for how believable their acting was then I wouldn't have felt so moved or connected to their troubles.
But more than Eastwood and Timberlake's acting Adams really grabbed me from the beginning of the film all the way through to the end. I connected to her characters struggles in a personal way that effects me every time I watch this movie.
My heart is captured by her and my own history during her journey with her father (Eastwood) as they struggle to find a way to meet in the middle and open up to one another and eventually uncover the buried history that took place in her childhood.
Its more emotional than I expected it to be but its a great film and it will be one that I will always enjoy every time I see it.
