Family Movie Night

Looking for a feel-good, family friendly movie?  We’ve found it!  Check out The Hill, an incredible new movie that’s based on the true story of Rickey Hill and his dream of becoming a professional baseball player, despite his very humble upbringing and severe health issues. This film offers a great reminder to everyone that if you believe in yourself and persevere, you can succeed!

Movie Synopsis 

Growing up impoverished in small-town Texas, young Rickey Hill shows an extraordinary ability for hitting 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 instead, to have him follow in his footsteps and become a preacher.  Even so, as a young man, Rickey (COLIN FORD) becomes a baseball phenomenon with his power to hit.

His desire to participate in a try-out for a legendary major league scout divides the family and threatens Rickey’s dream of playing professional baseball.

Based on a true story, THE HILL is directed by Jeff Celentano and also stars JOELLE CARTER, country music singer and songwriter RANDY HOUSER, Golden Globe nominee BONNIE BEDELIA, and SCOTT GLENN.

It’s a sweet and heartwarming movie and everyone can’t help but root for Ricky to keep on playing through all the hardships. Do you think he actually become a MLB player? You’ll have to watch to find out!
