2001 | 'Hardball'
The players: Keanu Reeves, Diane Lane and a team of young actors
How it changed the game: Far from the more romanticized fields of dreams, the film confronts the harsh realities of life in the Cabrini Greens projects. The kids like playing baseball as an escape, but Reeves helps them organize and realize what they can do. Yeah, the movie has a "savior" complex, but it may be the kids who help save Reeves from his problematic ways.
