What’s in a number? In this case, a legendary athlete: Jackie Robinson. In baseball, a player’s stats mean everything. They showcase whether that player is great, good, average, or why even try? 42 chronicles the historic season of Jackie Robinson, the first African-American to play major league baseball. Unfortunately, the film focuses on the symbolic ideal of the number 42 rather than the man who made 42 symbolic.
