High & Outside: a baseball noir

High & Outside: a baseball noir

98 min. – Drama | Sport

A minor league baseball player refuses to believe his career is over and takes desperate measures to keep his dream alive.

Phil (Phil Donlon) is a man obsessed with the game of baseball: the sounds of it, the smells of it, the feel of the bat on the ball, and the men who have made the game great. It’s been in his blood since the day he was born to Len Harding (Geoff Lewis), a legend in the game. Baseball is his life. At least it used to be. At 33, Phil is still trying to make it to the big leagues and escape the shadow of his famous and domineering father. But his marriage is falling apart, he’s broke and he’s just been released by the last team he thought could give him a shot at “the bigs.” High and Outside is a slow burn character study that doubles as a wild and dark ride through the gritty streets of LA’s San Fernando Valley.
