Set in the honorable days of baseball before free agency brought on enormous contracts and doping scandals, Mark Harris' drama follows a super star pitcher from New York and his friendship with a struggling third-string catcher from the country. Bang the Drum Slowly depicts the intense bond that grows between two lives intertwined by chance and kept together by loyalty.
