A League of Their Own

No upcoming showtimes scheduled.
Director: Penny Marshall
1992 / 128min / DCP

Geena Davis, Madonna, Rosie O’Donnell, Lori Petty are the star players of the Georgia Peaches, coached by crusty misogynist Tom Hanks, in Marshall’s feel-good chick-flick, a critically adored comedy about a World War II-era all-girls baseball team—based on the real All-American Girls Professional Baseball League (AAGPBL)—that packed theaters through the whole of summer, 1992. The cast went through a three-month baseball camp before the shoot, and the training shows in the adroit on-field action. “One of the year’s most cheerful, most relaxed, most easily enjoyable comedies. It’s a serious film that’s lighter than air, a very funny movie that manages to score a few points for feminism in passing.”—The New York Times
