For Beyond 50's "Personal Growth" talk, listen to an interview with Lynn Woodland. She'll lead you on your own experiment in miracle-making to push you beyond the boundaries of human potential. It can boggle your mind, touch your heart and forever change reality as you've known it. Miracles awaken us to dreams we never thought to dream before, to things our heart has always longed for but our minds had never known how to name, and these may compel you to leave predictability behind.

PG-50+ Movie Reviews

Beyond 50 only recommends films that are creatively responsible to reveal the finest qualities of the human spirit; allow you to think and feel deeply about life; make your heart soar; and champion human rights.

Based on a true story about Billy Beane, the general manager of the Oakland A's in 2002. When the team loses their three best players, he has to find the most cost-effective replacements. Beane reinvents the team on a tight budget with the help of an Ivy League grad named Peter Brand. It's a study in sabermetrics, the "invention" that applies a complex set of computer-generated measurements to assess the true worth of undervalued players. It's intelligent and amusing to see Beane challenge flawed, old school traditions. (Available in Theatres Everywhere; Genre: Drama, Comedy; Running Time: 2 hrs., 6 min.)
