THE NATURAL

Large_film_12721552_photo1

This critically acclaimed, international box office hit returns with 15 minutes of never-before-seen footage restored by its five-time Oscar®-nominated director Barry Levinson (winning Best Director for Rain Man). “I was able to not just simply add a few more scenes to the Director's Cut, but to actually re-cut the first act as it was originally conceived,” said Levinson. “This version is much closer to what I envisioned and it was fantastic to finally be able to bring it to fruition.” This magical sports fantasy, nominated for four Academy Awards®, spins a tale of an unknown middle-aged batter named Roy Hobbs (Robert Redford) who appears out of nowhere to take a losing 1930's baseball team to the top of the league. With the aid of a bat hewn from a tree once hit by lightning, Hobbs experiences the fame he should have had earlier when, as a rising pitcher, he was inexplicably shot by a young woman. The exceptional, award-winning cast includes Glenn Close, Kim Basinger, Wilford Brimley, Barbara Hershey, Robert Prosky, Richard Farnsworth, Joe Don Baker and Michael Madson.
