See '42'
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Please take your kids to see the movie "42," the story of Jackie Robinson, the first black player to play major league baseball, in 1947. If you don't have kids, it is worth seeing anyway.

Plan on discussing with them all the important issues shown in the movie, including sports, competition, compassion, love, history of sport, American culture and American history.

This is an entertaining movie, but it also is an important movie.
