Draft Day (2014)
At the NFL Draft, general manager Sonny Weaver has the opportunity to rebuild his team when he trades for the number one pick. He must decide what he’s willing to sacrifice on a life-changing day for a few hundred young men with NFL dreams.
I don’t like to watch sports. For some reason people think it’s because I don’t understand them. That’s not the case. I’ve played my share of sports and spent a lot of time watching them while growing up. There are just other things I’d rather be doing with my time. Like watching sports movies.
Draft Day is a side of football that I’m not too familiar with and I loved all the strategy, planning, and relationships behind everything. I really felt for Kevin Costner’s character. Finds out his woman is pregnant while he’s having to deal with everyone screaming at him because they don’t trust his decisions. Poor guy.
Jennifer Garner seemed a bit young to be in a relationship with Kevin Costner but oh well. Her character was a nice strong female. The only female character pretty much, except for his overbearing mother.
I liked this side of sports. I would recommend this movie.
