"A League of Their Own" is a sports drama starring Geena Davis, Lori Petty and Tom Hanks.
Being inspiring and thoughtful, but also very entertaining, "A League of Their Own" is an overwhelming story of fighting for your dreams and friendship.
The plot involves around the first women-only-league of baseball in the 1940s. It is a story about women standing together for their dream, in a world dominated by men. No matter how hard the times are, they stand strong and fight for their rights. The movie features strong performances by Tom Hanks (one year before he won the Academy Award for "Philadelphia", and two years before he starred in "Forrest Gump") and Geena Davis.
The theme song, a masterful ballad called "This Used to be my Playground", performed by superstar Madonna, who also co-stars in this movie (and does not even act THAT bad), is one of the movie history's most inspiring and wonderful songs.
If you expect an action-packed sports movie, you'll be disappointed, but if not, you'll get an amazing look into a time period, in which women had to fight for their rights - and one of the most accurate lessons in equality.
There is some mild language, s**t, a*s, and one b*tch. A man is called a penis. Tom Hanks' character is an alcoholic, but it is done for comic reasons and is not depicted glorifying. Should be okay for tweens and up!
