Director: Bennett Miller Writers: Steven Zaillian (screenplay), Aaron Sorkin (screenplay), Stan Chervin (story), Michael Lewis (book "Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game") Starring: Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Robin Wright, Chris Pratt, Stephen Bishop, Ken Medlock, Brent Jennings, Kerris Dorsey Disclaimer: Despite becoming a bigger and bigger fan of the sport of baseball over time and numerous recommendations over the years, I have never read Michael Lewis' acclaimed 2003 book Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game and am therefore unable to speak about how true the film is to the book. That said, I was able to enter the theater without preconceived notions or expectations and can say that Moneyball is one of my favorite movies of 2011. Moneyball is based on the true story of how Oakland Athletics general manager Billy Beane (Brad Pitt) bucked the system to field a competitive ballclub on a relatively miniscule operating budget. »
