’42’ Inspiational, Educational and Humorous Story of An American Legend by KIDS FIRST! Coming Attractions, www.kidsfirst.org

42

Out in theaters on April 12 is the inspirational story of an American Legend, Jackie Robinson. This long-awaited story shows how the history-making signing of a black man with the Brooklyn Dodgers changed not only baseball but all sports – forever. It has received rave reviews from our KIDS FIRST! Film Critics who were lucky enough to have seen advance screenings. KIDS FIRST! Film Critic Raven Devanney, age 15, says this film was more than just educational, but also “has a sense of humor, wit and a whole lot of inspiration.” She cautions that the PG-13 rating is due to “racial slurs and slanderous language that may be hard for [some] children to understand.”
