"The Natural"

Reviewed by James Tar

"The Natural", one of, if not the best, baseball movies of all time isn't known for brilliant quotes, but in an important scene, Iris Gaines (Glenn Close) says to Hobbs (Redford), "You know, I believe we have two lives.......The life we learn with and the life we live with after that". It was her way of telling Hobbs that his youthful mistakes and ambition were acceptable, it's how he applies what he has learned that is the most important thing. As Specs, we are in a constant process of learning and living, losing and improving, hopefully trading and winning.
