What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that some indirect sex talk and mild profanity make the movie somewhat questionable for younger kids, but tweens will like the spirit of camaraderie and the well-shot baseball games. The players model impressive team spirit while the movie tells the little-known true tale of women's wartime baseball.
- Families can talk about women's role (or lack thereof) in most professional sports. Do you think women could compete equally on men's teams? Why or why not?
- In order to keep the game popular with fans, the players flaunted their femininity. Do you think this was all in good fun, a sign of the times, or somewhat demeaning to great athletes?
