With its title coming from one of the most iconic film lines ever, this audiobook tells the story of the making of the famed 1992 movie A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN. It dives into the life of director Penny Marshall. While the author digs into the creation of the movie and its actors, Mia Hutchinson-Shaw gives an emotional narration that reflects the energy and happenings on and off the set. She doesn't imitate Marshall's thick New York accent but does so slightly when someone else is being quoted. The audiobook covers Marshall's detail-oriented approach to a film that required actors to have a modicum of athletic ability. Despite a few pronunciation missteps, Hutchinson-Shaw brings the author's fine research to light with her engaged narration. M.B. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2023]
