From the studio that brought you REMEMBER THE TITANS comes an inspirational film based on a true story. Jim Morris (Dennis Quaid), father, teacher, and high school coach, thought his dream was over. He'd had his shot playing baseball, blew out his shoulder, and retired without ever making it to the big leagues. Then, in 1999, Coach Morris made a fateful bet with his perpetually losing team. If they won the district championship, Morris -- who threw a 98 mph fastball -- would try out for the majors. The team went from worst to first, and Jim, living up to his end of the bargain, threw caution to the wind and was on the road to becoming the oldest rookie in the major leagues. This heartfelt, uplifting story about not giving up on your dreams is a remarkable and affecting story that will have everyone cheering.
Les studios Walt Disney ne sont pas seulement les plus gros fournisseurs mondiaux de dessins animés ; ils produisent aussi régulièrement des longs-métrages de fiction destinés à un public familial. The Rookie (La Recrue en version française), réalisé par John Lee Hancock et mettant en vedette Dennis Quaid, appartient à cette catégorie.
Même si Jim Morris, la quarantaine bien tassée, a dû abandonner le baseball dans sa jeunesse à la suite dune blessure, sa passion pour le sport est restée intacte. Ainsi, lorsque léquipe damateurs quil entraîne le met au défi de tenter sa chance dans les ligues majeures, cest son rêve denfant quil fera revivre, avec courage et détermination, tout en défiant les nombreux avis contraires.
Inspiré dun fait réel, The Rookie joue avec des ressorts dramatiques éprouvés maintes fois mais efficaces. De beaux sentiments habitent les personnages brossés à gros traits, et les valeurs traditionnelles de lAmérique sont assénées avec la délicatesse dun marteau piqueur, sans que le film ne perde ses qualités de divertissement grand public. Cest le rêve américain à la sauce Disney, forcément faite pour plaire à tout le monde. --Helen FaradjiSee all Product Description

I received the product, but the whole 'get it within the next 48 hours using Prime' was a bogus as one could endure. Days turned into well over a week and some. Read morePublished 19 months ago by D.W.
