He lived for a dream that wouldn't die.
An unknown middle-aged batter named Roy Hobbs with a mysterious past appears out of nowhere to take a losing 1930s baseball team to the top of the league in this magical sports fantasy. With the aid of a bat cut from a lightning struck tree, Hobbs lives the fame he should have had earlier when, as a rising pitcher, he is inexplicably shot by a young woman.

Great lesson on fidelity and loyalty. I loved the symbolic aspect of the entire movie - deep and academic almost.
