An excellent movie, though a little antiseptic. The scene where the Phillies manager stands in front of his dugout and hurls obscene language and racial slurs while Jackie stands in at the plate is fantastic, worth a screening of the entire film. Equality, baby, that's what it's all about -- or should be. A society constantly striving for equality is a strong one, something the power elite of today have forgotten. 42 brings that message home.
