Brothers Austin and Meredith Bragg, create a delightful debut feature film about the little-known history of pinball with snappy humor and a very impressive mustache. The game was illegal in most major cities in the United States from the1940s until 1976. That’s when a young GQ journalist and pinball-lover named Roger Sharpe called his shot in front of a handful of NYC politicians overturning the ban. The actors deliver charming performances as we discover the surprise romance that helped save the man who saved the game. It’s a story you won’t soon forget that reveals the truth behind one of Roger Sharpe’s life defining quotes, “Life is defined by risk; those you take and those you don’t. The ball is gonna drain no matter what, so find what you want and take a shot.”
