In Brief: DRAFT DAY (2014)
Kevin Costner plays the general manager of Cleveland Browns football team as they try to cut a deal or several deals on drfat day that will make them a power house once again.
Very good ensemble drama manages to get tension wrought out of what is for the non-football maniac an incredibly dull event- a sports draft. While the film is very by the numbers and the cast is in roles that makes you know exactly where they line up on the good guy bad guy spectrum, it still manages to get you to cheer at the end. Hell the first time I saw the film I came in in the final half hour and was cheering. I then went back and watched from start to finish and got a bigger kick out of it.
A super little film that's worth your time.
