Movies: ‘Trouble With the Curve’
In Robert Lorenz’s “Trouble With the Curve” the good guys win. All of them, pretty much.
Clint Eastwood is Gus, a scout for the Atlanta Braves. (He signed Chipper Jones, Dale Murphy and Tom Glavine, among others.)
But Gus is getting older. His eyesight is failing. His temper, never placid to begin with, is steadily disimproving.
And it doesn’t help that Phillip (Matthew Lillard), a cutting edge twerp who wears open-collared shirts and pullovers, has the Atlanta general manager’s ear. (Vince, the GM, is played by Robert Patrick, who looks almost as crusty as Clint.)
