Description:

In a game divided by color, he made us see greatness.

Academy Award® winner Brian Helgeland ("L.A. Confidential") wrote and directed the drama "42," starring Chadwick Boseman ("The Express") and Oscar® nominee Harrison Ford ("Witness").

Hero is a word we hear often in sports, but heroism is not always about achievements on the field of play. "42" tells the story of two men—the great Jackie Robinson and legendary Brooklyn Dodgers GM Branch Rickey—whose brave stand against prejudice forever changed the world by changing the game of baseball.

In 1946, Branch Rickey (Harrison Ford) put himself at the forefront of history when he signed Jackie Robinson (Chadwick Boseman) to the team, breaking Major League Baseball's infamous color line. But the deal also put both Robinson and Rickey in the firing line of the public, the press and even other players. Facing unabashed racism from every side, Robinson was forced to demonstrate tremendous courage and restraint by not reacting in kind, knowing that any incident could destroy his and Rickey's hopes. Instead, Number 42 let his talent on the field do the talking—ultimately winning over fans and his teammates, silencing his critics, and paving the way for others to follow.

In 1997, Major League Baseball retired the number 42 for all teams, making it the first number in sports to be universally retired. The only exception is April 15th—Jackie Robinson Day—commemorating the date of his first game as a Brooklyn Dodger. On that day alone, players from every team proudly wear Number 42 to honor the man who altered the course of history.

My husband and I enjoyed it even though we aren't the biggest baseball fans. They did use verbiage that provokes you. Overall good movie. Recommended.
5 of 5 Stars! 42 - DVDPatti B, 04/06/2015
This was a wonderful film. Not all movies on Christian Cinema are not considered religious but they do contain valuable lessons such as The Andy Griffith show for example. I know some Churches children share The Andy Griffith show to teach morals and values. Some movies even some approved by Dove contain some drug use etc...but they are showing what actually happens in life and overcoming those things.
Thank you Christian Cinema for offering family films along with the Christian based films.
