42 stars Academy Award® nominee Harrison Ford (What Lies Beneath, Air Force One, Witness) as the innovative Dodger's general manager Branch Rickey, the MLB executive who first signed baseball great Jackie Robinson to the minors and then helped to bring him up to the show, and Chadwick Boseman (The Express) as Robinson, the heroic African American who was the first man to break the color line in the big leagues. The film also stars Nicole Beharie (Shame) as Rachel Isum, who would become Robinson’s wife, as well as Christopher Meloni (upcoming Man of Steel) and T.R. Knight (TV’s Grey’s Anatomy).

Rated PG-13. Film starts at 7:15 PM.

After the film we will walk across the parking lot to Carlyle Grill.

    One of the best films of the current year. Robinson was a true hero.

    The film portrayed the story the way it should be for mass consumption. A great mix of people and children were in the theater tonight. How far we've come in 60 years, but we still have a little ways to go. The gathering at Carlyle following was great.

    Great movie and discussion after - ironically, when I returned home from the movie and turned on the television, the news story on CNN was about a school in Georgia that still has a segregated prom!!! IT'S 2013 PEOPLE!!!

    Sorry I'm just not that into baseball but I might do the Sapphires (singing group in VN during the war) at the Michigan at 6:45 and join you all later if weather not too bad and can coordinate the time.
