About a month ago my girlfriend showed me the trailer for the movie Sugar, and I’ve wanted to see it ever since. It’s about a young pitcher from the Dominican Republic who finally makes his way to the U.S. From the description and trailer, it sounds like this movie explores life beyond baseball a bit deeper than your typical hardball flick, which is why it interests me. Reading Jon Weisman’s write-up on the movie makes me want to see it even more.
It’s an independent release, and will hit select theaters in New York on April 3. Any interest in an RAB get-together? I’m not sure exactly which theaters will show it, but I’m sure there will be showings in Chelsea, LES, East Village, and other areas a bit further downtown. Email me if you’re down. If there are enough responses we’ll set it up.
