Million Dollar Arm

Sometimes to win, you have to change the game.

Jon Hamm stars in this uplifting film about a down-on-his-luck sports agent who recruits Indian cricket players to play baseball in the U.S.

When things aren’t going well for his career, sports agent JB Bernstein (Hamm) travels to India to find a young cricket pitcher he can turn into a major league baseball star. JB discovers Dinesh (played by Madhur Mittal, Slumdog Millionaire) and Rinku (played by Suraj Sharma, Life of Pi), two 18-year-old boys who have no idea about playing baseball, yet have a knack for throwing a fastball.

Upon their arrival in the U.S., the boys, who have never left their rural villages, are overwhelmed by culture shock. As the boys learn the finer points of baseball, JB, with the help of his charming neighbour Brenda, learns valuable life lessons about teamwork, commitment and what it means to be a family.

Based on a true story.
