PhotobucketPhotobucketFictional biography of a Dominican baseball player who is invited to try out in U.S. minor leagues, with the ultimate dream to play in the majors. Engrossing journey of our hero, Miguel ‘Sugar’ Santos takes us to places we do not expect to go in a typical sports drama. The events may not always be uplifting, but they are realistic, imbued with intelligence and heart. This quiet, but affecting story is anything but predictable. Directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s worthy follow-up to Half Nelson.
