What is arguably the US's greatest-ever sporting scandal took place in 1919 when eight players from the Chicago White Sox baseball team deliberately lost the World Series for money. But you don't need to be a baseball fan to enjoy this sharp and funny drama, which asks why these big stars, feeling that they were underpaid and unappreciated, decided to risk their careers for payouts from gambling consortiums.
This sprightly, stylish movie, set in Chicago in the 1930s, follows a pair of confidence tricksters as they pull off the biggest job of their careers.
