The Jewish Jackie Robinson

Very good movie to explain the discrimination Jews experienced in the US prior to World War II. Also, one of the rare movies about pre-war baseball players which isn't about a Yankee. I could easily have given it 5 stars had it covered his later career as well as it covered his pre-war career with the Detroit Tigers. One caution, there are many descriptions/repetitions of the racial epithets (and a few for other immigrant groups) used against Jews in the 1930's and the rise of organized antisemitism Nazi sympathizers in the US. Parents may want to caution kids before seeing the movie, and be prepared to discuss them after the movie.
