Robert De Niro and Michael Moriarty star in this superbly crafted film about the unlikely friendship between two baseball players. Moriarty plays the team's ace pitcher and social charmer; De Niro is the catcher, a farm boy from Georgia who lacks all of Moriarty's sophistication. He is also dying. During their last season together on a team fraught with bickering and infighting, the two men grow into manhood and respect for themselves and each other. Bang the Drum Slowly is moving without being sentimental and is filled with tenderness, humor, honesty and brilliant acting.
