CL Critic Curt Holman Recommends: Director Penny Marshall addresses the timeless question “Is there crying in baseball?” in 1992’s bittersweet comedy about the All-American Girls Baseball League of the 1940s, starring Geena Davis and Tom Hanks. Last month Amazon Prime debuted a loosely-connected “A League of Their Own” TV series, so this gives you the chance to check out the original film’s 4K restoration for its 30th anniversary.— Curt Holman 

From the venue:

4K Digital Restoration! 30th Anniversary! Tom Hanks, Geena Davis and Madonna star in this major-league comedy from director Penny Marshall (Big). Hanks stars as Jimmy Dugan, a washed-up ball player whose big league days are over. Hired to coach in the All-American Girls Baseball League of 1943—while the male pros are at war—Dugan finds himself drawn back into the game by the heart and heroics of his "all-girl" team. Jon Lovitz adds a scene-stealing cameo as the sarcastic scout who recruits Dottie Hanson (Davis), the "baseball dolly" with a Babe Ruth swing. Teammates Madonna, Lori Petty and Rosie O'Donnell round out the roster, taking the team to the World Series. Based on the true story of the pioneering women who blazed the trail for generations of athletes.
