Bennett Miller’s follow-up to 2005’s Capote stars Brad Pitt as Billy Beane, the Oakland Athletics’ general manager whose unorthodox approach to fielding a team had a major impact on the game. Jonah Hill and Phillip Seymour Hoffman co-star in this clever and compelling work of sports realism. –TIFF

A surprisingly engrossing film, not about sports, but about business. This was the last movie I expected to love, but I did from the very beginning. Brad Pitt is especially good here too; playing a lonely man who is broken by his divorce and his colossal failure as a ball player. An intimate examination of Pitt's character, drive, and belief in the "Moneyball Theory."
Hugo and The Artist lead, but there are also a few surprises here.
The Artist leads. Conspicuous in their total absence: Melancholia and The Tree of Life.
Strong showing for Margaret, Hugo and Moneyball.
Never mind Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill, and for that matter, Bennett Miller. For the critics, Moneyball is an Aaron Sorkin movie.
