You don’t have to be a pinball wizard to fall in love with this movie. Based on real life events, Pinball is the story of Roger Sharpe, a down-on-his-luck writer in 1970s New York City who has only one source of joy in life: pinball. When he learns during a police raid that his passion is considered illegal gambling, Roger sets out on a history-making mission: to overturn the ban by using his own abilities to prove pinball is a game of skill rather than purely one of chance. Mike Fasist (West Side Story) stars in this bouyant debut feature from filmmaking brothers Austin and Meredith Bragg captures the spirit of a beloved American pastime with snappy humor and idiosyncratic characters. (94 minutes)

It feels apt that Pinball is coming out in the week following the woeful Oscars—it’s better than all ten of the Best Picture nominees, and 2023 will be a fine year in movies if there are five better lead performances than Mike Faist’s, or five better original screenplays. In its modest way, it’s a nearly great film. – Richard Brody, The New Yorker
