We here at Phoenix are delighted to announce that, in conjuction with The Walt Disney Company, we’ll be running a competition to give away tickets to the Gala Screening of the upcoming Disney movie, Million Dollar Arm!
The Gala Screening will take place in Cineworld, Parnell Street, Dublin 1 on Wednesday August 27th at 7.30p.m.
Based on a true story, MILLION DOLLAR ARM is an inspirational and uplifting journey packed with funny moments which celebrates teamwork, commitment and what it means to be a family. With business failing, struggling US sports agent JB Bernstein (Jon Hamm) travels to India in a last ditch effort to save his career by finding a young cricketer to turn into a major baseball star.
With the help of a cantankerous retired talent scout (Alan Arkin) JB sets up a national contest called “The Million Dollar Arm” and discovers Rinku (played by Life of Pi’s Suraj Sharma) and Dinesh (Slumdog Millionaire’s Madhur Mittal), two 18-year-old boys who have a knack for throwing a fastball. Hoping to make a quick buck he brings them to LA to train, however the boys, who have never left their rural villages before, struggle as they try to adjust to their new life and cope with the pressure being heaped on them.
His livelihood on the line and relationship with the boys at stake, with the help of his friend Brenda (Lake Bell) JB realizes that family and friendships are more important than sealing the deal.
