THE HILL is about Baseball and Courage | in theaters August 25th!

Ricky has a passion for baseball and he also has a disability with his spine that affects his legs. His legs may be weak, but his arms can hit a ball like no other. The Hill is based on a true story. This is a great movie for families of all ages and especially for those that need a boost of courage and hope. The Hill will be in theaters beginning August 25, 2023.

Synopsis – The Hill movie

Growing up impoverished in small-town Texas, young Rickey Hill shows an extraordinary ability for hitting a baseball, despite being burdened by leg brace from a degenerative spinal disease. His stern, pastor father (DENNIS QUAID) discourages Rickey from playing baseball to protect him from injury, and to have him follow in his footsteps and become a preacher. As a young man, Rickey (COLIN FORD) becomes a baseball phenomenon. His desire to participate in a try-out for a legendary major league scout divides the family and threatens Rickey’s dream of playing professional baseball. Based on a true story, THE HILL is directed by Jeff Celentano and also stars JOELLE CARTER, country music singer and songwriter RANDY HOUSER, Golden Globe nominee BONNIE BEDELIA, and SCOTT GLENN.
