Who would have thought it? A film about Parkinson's disease and baseball?, 31 March 2006
Author: ego627 from Arizona

This is an extraordinary film, made on a shoestring but looking far better than that. See it if you love baseball. See it if you love road movies. See it if you have Parkinson's, or love someone who has Parkinson's...for that matter, see it if you just know someone who has it, and chances are you do. My husband has PD, and we saw the film as it was honored with closing the 2006 Phoenix Film Festival. A huge Parkinson's community attended, as did - I imagine - regular baseball fiends. It's a movie of love and laughs and tears, not afraid of frank emotion but equally unafraid of understated humor and flat-out human sweet-but-sexy openness. Take your kids if they love baseball. There's so much to learn here. Take them, especially, if someone in your family has PD. Just go. Support this little, big film.
