Billy Bean (Brad Pitt) General Manager of the Oakland A's(Oakland Athletics) and failed baseball player with the New York Mets teams up with Peter Brand (Jonah Hill) an economist from Yale who believes that a team is the combination of talents and it's cheaper to buy talented individuals that multi-million dollar individuals. All baseball conventional wisdom is wrong - reinvent the team on a budget, outsmart the richer clubs and use computer generated analysis. The value of the players formula is not a talent to catch, run or hit a ball but on getting to base and therefore increasing the likelihood of runs. I know nothing about baseball and the thought of a film about the game didn't enthuse me. How wrong you can be. This true story is a brilliant study of group dynamics, the script is intelligent and Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill hold this great story. And don't forget the resentful over weight Chief Coach Philip Seymour Hoffman. Great performance. Don't miss this movie.
