The Hill--Movie Review and Giveaway!



 About the Movie

 Growing up impoverished in small-town Texas, young Rickey Hill shows an
extraordinary ability for hitting a baseball, despite being burdened by leg braces
from a degenerative spinal disease. His stern, pastor father (DENNIS QUAID) discour-
ages Rickey from playing baseball to protect him from injury, and to have him follow
in his footsteps and become a preacher. As a young man, Rickey (COLIN FORD) be-
comes a baseball phenomenon. His desire to participate in a try-out for a legendary
major league scout divides the family and threatens Rickey’s dream of playing pro-
fessional baseball. Based on a true story, THE HILL is directed by Jeff Celentano and
also stars JOELLE CARTER, country music singer and songwriter RANDY HOUSER,
Golden Globe nominee BONNIE BEDELIA, and SCOTT GLENN.

My Thoughts


I enjoy films that are based on true stories so I was pretty excited to watch this! I knew nothing of Rickey Hill so the entire story was a surprise to me. The start of the film is when he is a young boy and living in a small Texas town. I really loved his siblings and there are some side characters that were very real to life that I enjoyed. As the movie progresses it does an excellent job at character development and showing character growth. I will say that it was pretty slow moving and I feel like they could have told the story in a much shorter time frame. Some of the scenes I thought were a bit extra and not necessary but it is still a good movie. There is some light language and a scene that indicates physical abuse and drunkenness but nothing graphic. James Hill, Rickey's dad, is a pretty hard character to fully understand but the ending really brings it all together. I do think this is a decent film and it was worth watching because it is based on a true story.
