Synopsis

John Cusack and Charlie Sheen lead a “superb ensemble of actors” (Newsweek) as young idealistic players on the White Sox, who, despite being pennant winners, are treated with disdain by their penny-pinching owner/manager. Ripe for a money-making scheme, the demoralized team agrees to throw the World Series. But when they’re defeated, a couple of sports writers smell a fix, and a national scandal explodes,
ripping the cover off America’s favorite pastime in “the movie baseball fans have been waiting for” (USA Today).

Reviews

Variety | March 21, 2007

Perhaps the saddest chapter in the annals of professional American sports is recounted in absorbing fashion in Eight Men Out.

Janet Maslin New York Times | May 20, 2003

For Mr. Sayles, whose idealism has never been more affecting or apparent than it is in this story of boyish enthusiam gone bad in an all too grown-up world, Eight Men Out represents a home run.
