The story of baseball icon Jackie Robinson is recounted with sincerity and reverence in director Brian Helgeland's 2013 drama. Chadwick Boseman strikes the right notes in the central role, conveying Robinson's dignity and grace as he faced massive prejudice in breaking the sport's color line. Equally good is Harrison Ford as Branch Rickey, the Brooklyn Dodgers general manager who gave Robinson huge support after hiring him. Nicole Beharie plays Robinson's wife, Rachel.
