Would you compare a kid struggling with Little League to grown men and women desperately searching to find a purpose in life? Are not the emotions just as intense when you are 10 as they are when you are 40 years old? Sons...remember the conflicts you had with your fathers? Can anybody recall a friendly neighbor? Remember the sentiment evoked by the legendary 'Iron Horse' of the New York Yankee's in 1934? Do you recall the thrill of your first baseball game? Can you remember the fear you felt when faced with the unknown paths of life?
These are just some of the themes, issues and features offered in the film, 'The Sweet Spot'. Victor Spinilli is 39 years old, going on 12. He desperately holds onto the glorious days of his youth as a promising young baseball player. But those days are past. Deeply moved by the death of a close friend, Victor wakes up one day and discovers that the surrounding world is passing him by. He now seeks a purpose to this life, and realizes that bonds, old and new, need to be fused, mended and sometimes broken in order to move ahead.
'The Sweet Spot' is a simple story about the complexities of life. It is about broken dreams and how they can stifle our lives...and it is about new aspirations and how they can create passion. Most of all, it humorously and poignantly portrays the struggles that common people go through as they attempt to 'grow up'. Summary written by
