SCREWBALL

Director:
Billy Corben

Premiere:
Toronto 2018

Select Festivals:
DOC NYC, Miami

About:
A true-crime comedy exposing a notorious Major League Baseball doping scandal.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Director Billy Corben profiles the colorful South Florida characters who were responsible for supplying performance-enhancing drugs to the Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez and other players. The film plays like a crime comedy in the tradition of Elmore Leonard. The behavior is so childish that Corben reenacts scenes with actual children playing Rodriguez and others, like a cross between THE LITTLE RASCALS and THE THIN BLUE LINE.
