Article about The Perfect Game

Here is a really nice interview/review about The Perfect Game which is coming out on April 16:

I have a soft spot for Clifton Collins Jr., and there's something about Little League baseball that makes it hard to keep up your cynicism. His new film, The Perfect Game, come out on April 16th, and it looks like a lot of fun. Being that the film isn't popping up every few minutes, especially with the wave of big-budget items elbowing their way into your vision right now, I wanted to make sure you got a chance at some clips.
The first glance impression may be that this is a simple, though fun, family-friendly movie much like so many others, but don't let this one slip by you without a closer look. Though certainly a fun, family flick, I hope a lot of people see the real potential, and the abilities of Collins Jr., and give this one a chance.
Living amidst the gritty poverty of 1957 Monterrey, Mexico, a rag–tag group of boys from the wrong side of the tracks discovers the joy of sandlot baseball under the guidance of Cesar, an aspiring Major League Coach thwarted by discrimination.
Armed with the dream of playing a real Little League game, the young players defy a total lack of resources, disapproving parents, and widespread prejudice to score their first Little League victory and find themselves at the beginning of a once-in-a-lifetime journey.
Relying on their faith, a warm-hearted priest and their love of the game, the nine players and their coach embark on an incredible, record-breaking winning streak that leads them across the border to America, and all the way to the 1957 Little League World Series where a miracle will cement their place in history and change their lives forever.
