Released in 1984 and nominated for four Academy Awards, The Natural, based on the 1952 novel of the same name by Bernard Malamud, is Barry Levinson’s beautiful embrace of magical reality filmmaking. The film, featuring Robert Redford, Robert Duvall and Glenn Close [Oscar nominated], recounts the experiences of the mythical Roy Hobbs, an individual with great “natural” baseball talent, and spans the several decades of Roy’s career.
