Cobb - Cobb

Slovenski opis filma:

Kaj stori pisec biografije, ko je resnica o tistem človeku veliko manj prijetna od legende? Ta moralna dilema pretresa življenje vrhunskega igralca bejzbola Tya Cobba in športnega novinarja, ki naj bi napisal njegovo zgodbo.Slavni športni novinar Al Stump (Robert Wuhl) je sprva navdušen, da je prav njega osebno izbral legendarni igralec bejzbola Ty Cobb (Tommy Lee Jones) in ga pooblastil za pisca svoje uradne biografije. Cobb pravi, da bi rad povedal resnico, vendar Stump kmalu ugotovi, da je Cobbov sloves več kot upravičen. Človek je odkriti rasist, nasilnež, poln besa, sovraštva do žensk ter izkoriščevalski. Nesojeni avtor biografije je zdaj razdvojen; naj napiše politično korektno in vse umazanije očiščeno knjigo, kakor hoče Cobb, preprosto zgodbo o bejzbolski legendi, ali naj pove neolepšano resnico o Cobbovem težavnem in pokvarjenem življenju? Nazadnje sklene, da mu pravzaprav ni treba izbirati, napisal bo dve knjigi – eno za Cobba in drugo za širšo javnost.

Originalni opis filma:

Al Stump is a famous sports-writer chosen by Ty Cobb to co-write his official, authorized 'autobiography' before his death. Cobb, widely feared and despised, feels misunderstood and wants to set the record straight about 'the greatest ball-player ever,' in his words. However, when Stump spends time with Cobb, interviewing him and beginning to write, he realizes that the general public opinion is largely correct. In Stump's presence, Cobb is angry, violent, racist, misogynistic, and incorrigibly abusive to everyone around him. Torn between printing the truth by plumbing the depths of Cobb's dark soul and grim childhood, and succumbing to Cobb's pressure for a whitewash of his character and a simple baseball tale of his greatness, Stump writes two different books. One book is for Cobb, the other for the public.
