The Yankles, one of the SLCFF’s 2010 features, has been released by Magnolia Pictures across nearly all home video and On Demand platforms in the USA and Canada.
It’s the the story of an upstart, orthodox yeshiva baseball team that earns a ticket to compete in the college world series, coached by Charlie Jones, an ex-major league center fielder on parole for multiple DUI convictions and desperate to fulfill his community service. While The Yankles strive for success on the field, Charlie works to rebuild his reputation and relationships, and in the process finds redemption.
It really is a great, funny movie and we’re thrilled to see such good things happening for it. The filmmakers are stand-up, classy gentlemen and we wish them the best in terms of future success.
So what are you waiting for? Get off the Internet and go watch it!
