On our way home from Wimberley, we stopped to see "Draft Day" with Kevin Costner and Jennifer Garner. I am not a football fan and have never understood the game, but I loved this movie. The focus of "Draft Day" is on the NFL Draft and the wheeling and dealing that leads up to the draft picks. I even learned some things.
Thoughts and feelings of the players, coaches, owners and general managers were addressed as well as the immense pressure and tension placed upon the general managers of the teams involved. I found the offers and deals to be fascinating. Many strategies were involved.
Kevin Costner did a decent acting job and Jennifer Garner was her charming self, although I felt her character wasn't given a lot of depth. I hated the coach but respected the way Kevin Costner, as General Manager, handled him.
One way I judge movies now is whether or not they put me to sleep. This movie did not make me sleep. I was fully engaged with the story and the characters.
I give this four out of five stars.
