I often come across the opinion that this picture is about baseball. I think that the film is not at all sporty in its essence.
This is a touching, truly American melodrama, built on typically American archetypes – a belief in rapid success, regardless of origin or education, family values, baseball and influential dealers.
It is within this framework that the film passes. They tell us about a middle-aged man who decides to start a sports career and suddenly becomes a superstar for everyone. He has a very difficult relationship with women who deserve special mention. With the owners of the club, he has constant disputes – they seek to limit his abilities, forcing him to lose certain matches.
At first glance, nothing new – but, very touching, well-developed and even partly mystical script, allows you to take this film seriously.
The seriousness gives the selection of actors and the level of their game. The leading man, Robert Redford, is just perfect for the role. Maybe he played and not really straining, but getting into the type is just perfect.
Many praise deserves the game of actresses. Barbara Hershey plays a small but memorable role. Her heroine psychologically traumatized the hero, slowing down her early sports career. Much remains unsaid, but the portrait that Hershi created is impressive.
No less impressive is the portrait of the mistress of the protagonist, who performed the little-known in those years, Kim Basinger. She has a small and very typical role, but the actress coped with her. Her every appearance in the frame creates tension. Very accurate and ambiguous image.
At first glance, Glenn Close was a much easier role. In essence, she played a more feminine variation of her heroine in their ÂWorld of the Harp. But Close was very harmonious and made an unexpectedly strong duet with Redford.
However, as in the case of Brubaker (another film where Redford starred), the second part of Natural slips significantly. This is especially true for the ending of the film.
Both of these films have several things in common – well-developed scripts and a wonderful cast. Meanwhile, not the strongest direction does not allow to recognize these pictures as masterpieces. However, taking into account that in those years, the overall level of the films being released was relatively low, the pictures were still nominated for an Oscar in a number of nominations and had quite a good press. For example, in 1994, most likely they would have gone unnoticed.
