Even non–sports fans will get invested in this crowd-pleasing drama. It focuses on real-life Oakland A's exec Billy Beane (Brad Pitt), who constructs a team of misfit players based on statistics, not talent. MVP Pitt perfectly embodies the failed ballplayer turned businessman -- and gives his best performance in ages. (Sony, $31)
