If you are wanting to be informed, entertained, and have a wonderful experience see 42. Jack Robinson and Branch Rickey were iconic figures and this movie captures a time in America when the country was moving in a positive direction toward racial justice. The baseball scenes were amazing re-creations. I remember Ebbets Field, Crosley Field, and Forbes Field and the movie brought memories flooding back. If you see one movie this year see 42

The acting especially by Harrison Ford was superb. I was too young to know about the true discrimination of blacks in sports so this opened by eyes. This show is well worth your money so go see it. .

Great movie a real must see. Some typical US racial history we all know but presented so well and the character development was really stellar. Don't miss this one!!!

I laughed and cried during the Movie ‘42’ as it faced unabashed racism from every side. Unfortunately, because of the past bigotry between ethnic groups; today more than many conceal those same emotions. Here is a blameless quote from the movie “What are you afraid of?” I’m only Human…The Movie ‘42’ is a must see human interest film.
