42 is sure to deliver the amazing true story of the first African American to play Major League Baseball during our modern era, Jackie Robinson. Typically, I find these films to be depressing because they uncover some of the filth our nation has been responsible for in the past. However, it should also be incredibly triumphant demonstrating a first hand occurrence of when segregation began to deteriorate in this country.
Jackie Robinson (Chadwick Boseman) receives guidance from Brooklyn Dodgers Team Executive Branch Rickey (Harrison Ford) as he breaks the color barrier of Major League Baseball.
