In 2008, J. B. Bernstein is a sports agent who finds his business being seriously outplayed by his deep-pocketed competitors. Inspired by reality shows and Indian cricket games on TV, Bernstein gets the bold idea of finding cricket players in India and training them to become pro baseball players in America. After a long search, Bernstein finds two talented, but non-cricket playing, youths, Rinku Singh and Dinesh Patel. Together, Berthstein takes his prospects to Los Angeles where they find mastering a new sport in a foreign land a daunting challenge. As these boys struggle amid an alien culture, Bernstein must find a way to make their dream come true. In doing, Bernstein finds a deeper humanity to his work growing friendships he never expected to have.
The boys and I watched this movie together. I love that it was something we could all watch and enjoy. I thought the acting was brilliant and the boys kept asking me if it was a true story. Since my boys are half Indian, they loved that they got to watch the actors playing cricket, which is a game dad has told them about for years, but never actually played.
Xander asked me if he could watch it again, already!
