Echoes of Norman Rockwell bounce off 'The Hill,' a sincere, inspiring baseball movie grounded in a complicated father-son relationship.
NO LONGER PLAYING
Growing up impoverished in small-town Texas, young Rickey Hill shows an extraordinary ability to hit a baseball, despite being burdened by leg braces from a degenerative spinal disease. His stern pastor father (DENNIS QUAID) discourages Rickey from playing baseball to protect him from injury, and to have him follow in his footsteps and become a preacher. As a young man, Rickey (COLIN FORD) becomes a baseball phenomenon. His desire to participate in a try-out for a legendary major league scout divides the family and threatens Rickey’s dream of reaching the major leagues.
