Draft Day - 超級選秀日

Draft Day (超級選秀日) is an 2014 film. The films stars Kevin Costner. The large supporting cast includes Jennifer Garner and Denis Leary.

Costner plays Sonny Weaver, Jr., the General Manager of Cleveland Browns. They trade up from their seventh overall pick to the top pick. Sonny is not expected to draft the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, Wisconsin quarterback Bo Callahan. But he would rather shore up the defense with linebacker Vontae Mack of Ohio State. Sonny stars his research of both players and takes other offers. To top it all off, there's Sonny's ex-wife, deceased father, semi-senile mother, over reach owner, and a girlfriend in the workplace scenario all thrown in for some extra drama.

If you're a football sports fan. You'll enjoy this. It's like a amped up version of NFL live but behind the scenes. Costner puts on a quiet performance in this. Not a lot of emotion and more going through the motions. There's lots of sports politics.

If you're expecting Moneyball, look elsewhere. This movie is much more drama filled and condensed to a 12 hour time frame.
