Directed by Brian Helgeland | 2013

With Chadwick Boseman, Harrison Ford

Discover a stirring film that firmly situates the true story of baseball player Jackie Robinson in historical and social context. In 1947, Jim Crow ruled the South, and segregation was a social reality as far north as Brooklyn. This sensitive portrait of a political trailblazer recognizes Robinson’s brave actions as one of the earliest victories of the civil rights movement.
