A well-chosen cast does much to help make director William Dear's earnest, fact-inspired drama as affecting as it wants to be.
Clifton Collins Jr. plays a late-1950s baseball coach who aspires to be in the big leagues, but takes on the challenging of mentoring a team of Mexican youths who face discrimination ... something their new leader can empathize with only too well. They eventually make it all the way to the Little League World Series. Cheech Marin, Louis Gossett Jr., Bruce McGill ("Rizzoli & Isles") and Emilie de Ravin ("Lost") also appear. *** (PG: P) (Also on Blu-ray)Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
