An unknown batter takes a losing 1930s baseball team to the top of the league. A beautifully filmed movie about baseball as myth. Roy Hobbs (Robert Redford), a young man whose gift for baseball sets him apart, finds that trouble dogs him, particularly when it comes to women. In time, as an aging rookie, Roy must fight against his past to lead his team to the World Series and win the woman of his dreams.
