    I missed this movie when it first came out ; Glad that I was able to catch it on the big screen now. Boseman & Ford were both great. Each displayed "character" & dignity when lesser men would have crumbled. But, by maintaining self-control (in spite of all the shunning & verbal abuse), Robinson would gain the respect by all(almost). One of the most significant dialogs was when Rickey(Ford) explains to Robinson(Boseman) what he would have to contend with (all kinds of abuse), if he accepts a position in the "Majors", & that, HE would have to be above it all.. A movie "Moves" you through your emotions whether it be laughing , crying, tension, or anger at injustice. This movie did it. NOTE: For all non-movie goers (though I don't know why you would be reading this if you're not a movie goer), you cannot capture at home, the absorbing qualities of a BIG SCREEN, SURROUND SOUND, in a darkened theater. You just can't ! RH

    Great movie, touching and heart warming. It will make you laugh a little, cheer a lot and even cry.

    I almost forgot how racist this country is until this reminded me again. I really don"t think its gotten any better. The movies depicts that life story in an incredible light. The only other movie that pissed me off because of the unrightousness was Brave Heart.

    I'm a Canadian of Chinese descent. My parents suffered racial discrimination when they arrived. Fortunately, the younger generation in Canada now seem to accept other ethnic groups.

    As a Canadian, I regret to say that we still have bigots and prejudiced citizens in Canada. This is particularly true in provinces like Saskatchewan.
