REVIEWS | CHASING 3000 MOVIE
Chasing 3000 tells the story of two brothers who set out in the summer of 1972 to witness Roberto Clemente’s 3000th hit, a milestone which few have achieved in the history of the game. On the face of it, this is a baseball movie. As American as mom and apple pie. But once the film starts rolling you realize that this is really something else. It’s about something more universal, and is bound to touch everyone.
When a film is based on a true story, by definition, many already know the basic plot going in. It’s essentially summed up in the first line of this review. Thus the challenge of the filmmakers is to create a new layer of excitement and interest on top of what is known. How is this done? First, write a good script. The team of Bill Mikita, Cris D’Annunzio, and director Greg Lanesey did just that. Next, find actors who will flesh it out and see this vision through.
Trevor Morgan is Mickey (based on writer Bill Mikita), the teen inspired to be in the stands when the momentous event occurs, no matter where or when. Morgan’s ability to keep a thin veil of strength and confidence over an inner sensitivity and childlike innocence is second to none. Rory Culkin is Roger, the muscular dystrophy-afflicted little brother whose toughness perhaps even surpasses that of Mickey. It’s that quality in Culkin’s performance, combined with the vulnerability which Morgan imparts to the physically healthy older brother, which is at the heart of the curious dynamic which drives the film. Who is leading whom? Ray Liotta heads up the multitude of veterans who populate Chasing 3000. As the present-day version of Mickey, he bookends the film and provides an uncharacteristically loving father figure to his own two children, for whom this story is now family legend. As in any good road movie, the boys will encounter a deliciously diverse group of characters along the way, and M. Emmet Walsh does a star turn as the old codger with a heart of gold who provides some of the film’s most poignant moments (and there are many).
