The Hill Movie Review and Synopsis
The Hill follows Rickey starting in his childhood, where a degenerative spinal disease has him wearing leg braces. His father (played aptly by Dennis Quaid) is a preacher, who is struggling to keep food on the table.
In spite of their extreme poverty and his illness, Rickey dreams of playing baseball in the big leagues.
His siblings are his biggest supporters, while his dad wants to protect him from further damage to his frail body. Throughout the movie, themes of family, faith, and hope reverberate.
Outspoken Gram (Bonnie Bedelia) shines in her scenes. A touch of humor is added by the character of Gracie in several appearances in the film. As the movie progresses, the family becomes more and more divided in their support of Rickey out of fear of further injuries.
This film is great for families, with life lessons on hope, overcoming obstacles and reaching for your dreams.
