One of my top ten favorite movies is A League of Their Own. My dad first showed it to me when I was younger and after that, I was hooked. I would watch it over and over again, just because it made me feel good. I love the characters and how you felt like you knew them with all of their personalities, like Dottie: the protective older sister, Kit: the spunky and stubborn firecracker, and Doris: the hysterical softy. Every time I watch, I smile, laugh, and cry at the same parts I always do. I feel that I go through the journey with these girls and sometimes think how cool it would be if there was presently and women’s professional baseball league. I will never forget Tom Hank’s performance in this movie because it is simply outstanding. He seems like he became so invested in his character, Jimmy Dugan, and that he even acted like him when he was not filming. I truly love this movie and cannot wait for my children, especially my daughters, to watch this movie. I feel that this movie shows girls that we can do anything that we put our minds to and gives us a sense of empowerment.
