This film tells the story of two men -- the great Jackie Robinson and legendary Brooklyn Dodgers general manager Branch Rickey -- whose brave stand against prejudice forever changed the world by changing the game of baseball.
In 1946, Rickey (Harrison Ford) put himself at the forefront of history when he signed Jackie Robinson (Chadwick Boseman) to the team, breaking Major League Baseball's infamous color line. But the deal also put both Robinson and Rickey in the firing line of the public, the press and even other players. Facing unabashed racism from every side, Robinson was forced to demonstrate tremendous courage and restraint by not reacting in kind, knowing that any incident could destroy his and Rickey's hopes. Instead, No. 42 let his talent on the field do the talking -- ultimately winning over fans and his teammates, silencing his critics, and paving the way for others to follow.
"42" is held over. 128 minutes. It is rated PG-13 for thematic elements including language.
