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.

Both my husband (a yankee fan) and thought the movie was terrific. Harrison Ford deserves an academy award for his role. Chadwick Boseman was so very believeable in his role as Jackie Robinson.
The announcer stated that the Dodgers "WIN", when the home run was made in the top of the 9th inning. (my husband, the baseball maven said that was the only thing incorrect in the Movie.)
Rachel Robertson was a strong, supportive wife and still shows her strength today.

This movie is based on true events in the life of Jackie Robinson and the storytelling is great. The movie keeps you engaged, entertained and touches upon the civil rights issues brewing at the time. Unlike other movies (ie the Butler), it doesn't get lost in the details of the civil rights movement and doesn't become a long drawn history lesson, it stays on point, namely #42.
I recommend this movie for the whole family.

Excellent portrayal of the introduction of Jackie Robinson into the world of professional baseball. It was quite illuminating as to what he had to endure in his first year with the Montreal farm team and then with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Two great heroes here: Jackie and Branch Rickey. Fantastic acting. Wouldn't mind seeing it again. Great film for everyone to see and be enlightened about the consequences of racial prejudice.
