ABOUT THE MOVIE:
Based on a true story, sports agent JB Bernstein
(Jon Hamm) finds that business has changed and things aren’t going well for his
career. In a last ditch effort to save his livelihood he concocts a scheme to
find baseball’s next great pitching ace. Hoping to find a young cricket pitcher
he can turn into a major league baseball star, JB travels to India to produce a
reality show competition called “The Million Dollar Arm.” With the help of
cantankerous but eagle-eyed retired baseball scout Ray Poitevint (Alan Arkin),
he discovers Dinesh (played by Madhur Mittal from “Slumdog Millionaire”) and
Rinku (played by Suraj Sharma from “Life of Pi”), two 18-year-old boys who have
no idea about playing baseball, yet have a knack for throwing a fastball.
Hoping to sign them to major league contracts and make a quick buck, JB brings
the boys home to America to train. While the Americans are definitely out of
their element in India, the boys, who have never left their rural villages, are
equally challenged when they come to the States. As the boys learn the finer
points of baseball, JB, with the help of his charming friend Brenda (Lake
Bell), learns valuable life lessons about teamwork, commitment and what it
means to be a family.
