Documentarian Alexandria Stapleton hits a home run with this insightful film about superstar baseball outfielder Reggie Jackson. In Reggie, viewers receive a no-holds-barred perspective that includes the player's passion for the game since childhood. "I was a fan that was a good baseball player," he remembers, "and I sat in the stands when I was a kid."

Jackson faces hurdles upon entering the major leagues in 1967, which includes racism. "You knew you were colored and you knew you were a problem for most White people," he notes. "There was no question that you felt it. There was no question that you went to the ballpark with it every day." But Jackson perseveres because "what I wanted to do," he confidently says, "is fulfill a talent of the guy that I looked in the mirror at every day."
