I had wanted to see this movie for quite some time and I finally got the chance to. :) The movie stars Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams, and Justin Timberlake.
Gus (Eastwood), is a baseball talent scout for the Atlanta Braves whose old-school ethics are on the outs. He’s getting older and realizes that he may not be able to keep his job too much longer. His eyesight is going quickly and he feels as though he may be on his last recruiting trip. When his estranged daughter (Adams) finds out about his health and said recruiting trip, she decides to meet up with him to tale care and watch over him. Adams plays an upwardly mobile attorney who has an incredible interest in baseball, thanks to her father. Eastwood and Adams end up coming in contact with another scout, who’s a former baseball pitcher (Timberlake) who Eastwood scouted when Timberlake”s character was in his prime.
This is a really cute movie that didn’t get a whole lot of publicity, however I’m so glad I was able to watch it. Between Eastwood’s grumpy, old man character, Adam’s sophisticated-ness, and Timberlake’s charm, you should definitely check out this movie!
