A Dying Red Sox Fan Reconnects With His Son In Reverse The Curse

You might think that a movie about a Red Sox fan who’s dying would be centered around the 2004 Red Sox breaking the Curse of the Bambino. No, this tale takes place a bit earlier than that story. David Duchovny stars, writes, and directs Reverse The Curse. The story is based on Duchovny’s book Bucky F*cking Dent. It also stars Logan Marshall-Green, Stephanie Beatriz, Jason Beghe, Evan Handler, Santo Fazio, with Daphne Rubin-Vega and Pamela Adlon.

Reverse the Curse follows Ted (Marshall-Green), a failed writer-turned-Yankees Stadium peanut slinger who moves back home after learning of the failing health of his Red Sox-obsessed father, Marty (David Duchovny). While Marty strives to make amends for his past, his health drops abruptly whenever his beloved Sox lose a game. To keep his dad’s spirits up, Ted takes matters into his own hands and manufactures a winning streak with the help of a crew of dad’s neighborhood pals. In the process, Ted strikes up a bond with Marty’s charming “Death Specialist,” Marianna (Beatriz), and the prospect of a new love reignites his ambitions. An ode to the bond between father and son, this warm and witty film demonstrates how life truly belongs to the losers, and that the longshots are the ones worth betting on.

As a Yankees fan, I hate to see anything related to the Red Sox, but this looks like a heartwarming and interesting tale about a father and son.

Reverse The Curse releases on June 13th, 2024.
