Watch the emotional melt down!
22 May 2004 | by (Charleston, SC) – See all my reviews

Anyone who has lost someone can identify with this picture. "A Little Inside" is an appropriate name for this film. The creators have taken the love for the game of baseball and transformed it into an emotional roller coaster ride that grabs your heartstrings as well as your head. Benjamin King does an excellent job of showing how hard it is for real men to show their emotions. The women who encounter this man are taken in by his love for his daughter and his emotional need to watch her grow. The character Ed Mills is torn between his love for baseball and his love for his daughter. Can't he have both? This film is being recommended for people of all ages with a warning to hang onto your heart.
