Sports is a movie genre that can be cross referenced with many others. Romance plays well with the sports theme in Bull Durham. You can see the science fiction/fantasy influence in Field of Dreams. Raging Bull can be confused with a drama but it’s still a boxing film just like Million Dollar Baby. Brian’s Song is a football movie, romance, and biography movie. Some of the best movies in history have been true stories about real people who touch us in some way, even if it’s a sports jock who happens to die, like Jim Thorpe, All American or The Pride of the Yankees (Lou Gehrig).
