"Moneyball" is a 2011 sports drama film directed by Bennett Miller and based on the non-fiction book "Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game" by Michael Lewis. The film tells the true story of how the Oakland Athletics, a Major League Baseball team, used advanced statistics and data analysis to assemble a competitive team with a limited budget. Brad Pitt stars as Billy Beane, the Athletics' general manager, who, frustrated by the financial constraints of his team, turns to Peter Brand (played by Jonah Hill), a young economist with a unique approach to evaluating players. Together, they challenge traditional baseball scouting methods and use statistical analysis to identify undervalued players who can help the team win games. "Moneyball" explores themes of innovation, the clash between tradition and modernity, and the challenges of overcoming adversity. It also delves into the personal and professional journey of Billy Beane as he faces skepticism and resistance from traditionalists in the baseball world. The film received critical acclaim for its smart and engaging storytelling, as well as the performances of Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill. It also resonated with both baseball fans and non-sports enthusiasts for its broader themes of data-driven decision-making and the underdog's struggle against the odds. "Moneyball" was nominated for several Academy Awards and is regarded as one of the standout sports films of its time.
