Monday Night at the Movies - A to Z

This week's choice, The Natural. Centered in America's favorite past-time (no, not watching movies) baseball, and rooting for the underdog. Roy Hobbs (Robert Redford) makes a comeback as an aging ball player to the game he loves best.  It's a story of second chances, forgiveness, and believing in one's ability. Wound through the story is an other wordly thread of  magical forces and sports superstition. We all know you don't need the feather to fly, but it doesn't hurt to have a patch with a lightning motif just to hedge your bet.

If you can't make it to the Fourth of July fireworks, there's a spectacular display in the movie.

Get me out of my rut, what's your favorite movie that starts with N?
