Storyline

Nicky Rogan's new play is opening on Broadway and many agree, he has written the best play his career. Or has he? Critic Steven Schwimmer is slated to review and he's ruined many a playwright with his scathing words. Nicky is becoming concerned, but instead chooses to obsess over his Red Sox and their chances again the Mets in Game 6 of the 1986 World Series. Will the Sox and his play come crashing down on the same night? Written by Martin Lewison <dr@martinlewison.com>

Trivia

Director Hoffman says in his commentary that the character of Steven Schwimmer is given a birthmark because the original character, as written by Don DeLillo, was not meant to be as attractive as 'Robert Downey Jr.' was when he was cast in the part. Hoffman says, "We had gone long and hard trying to figure out how we create some kind of physical scar that replicates the kind of wound that he feels inside." See more »

Quotes

Elliott Litvak: I can't write one word without imagining what his response is going to be. I am paralyzed as an artist.
Nicky Rogan: See, I don't have the problems you artists have.
Elliott Litvak: You've been saying that for years.
Nicky Rogan: What?
Elliott Litvak: "No, I'm just a professional. I'm a dues-paying member of the Guild." You are afraid, Nicky. That's the darkest part of you.

Incredibly Well Done
5 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie with about 300 people as a screening for a film class. About 1/2 the audience did not like it and the other 1/2 did. Many saw it as a baseball movie. I saw it as a movie about fear of failure and the expectation of failure in life by many. I felt that the script relating the expectations of the Boston Red Sox fans who feel the curse and expect to lose was incredibly written to parallel how this can relate to the way a person visualizes his life and dreams (real or imagined). The script was brilliant, the acting was extraordinary. I don't know that this will work commercially but I was moved by this movie more than any movie I have seen in a long time. Too me, this was not a baseball movie, this was a brilliant look into the the mind of more people than we would like to believe.
