By DAVID WEINER
December 18, 2012
Clint Eastwood takes a turn in front of the camera for good friend and producing partner Robert Lorenz -- who makes his directorial debut with Trouble with the Curve – as Gus Lobel, one of the best scouts in baseball. But age is starting to catch up with him, and he refuses to be benched for the final innings of his career. When the Atlanta Braves front office (which includes Matthew Lillard) starts to question his judgment, he reluctantly recruits his estranged attorney daughter Mickey (Amy Adams) to be his eyes – forcing the two to reconcile and make new discoveries that could change their future. Justin Timberlake also stars as Johnny Flanagan, a rival scout who has his sights on a career in the announcer's booth -- and romance with Mickey.
