Chris Gardner is an intelligent, energetic guy who can't catch a break. In the sluggish Bay Area economy of 1981, he's losing ground, by investing all his family's money in high cost bone-density scanners. His wife leaves him, he loses his apartment, and with his 5-year-old son in tow joins the ranks of the homeless, if not the hopeless. Bounced from shelter to shelter, he finds himself a single dad who has to support and care for a young child. Impressing a Dean Witter higher-up by solving a Rubik's cube during a taxi ride, Chris gets a place in a stockbroker-training program. But internships don't pay, and there's no guarantee he'll be offered a job at the end of it. Against all odds, he pushes toward success, and eventually turns his life around

In 1959, Truman Capote was a popular writer for The New Yorker. He learns about the horrific and senseless murder of a family of four in Holcomb, Kansas.

However, as Capote digs deeper into the story, he is inspired to expand the project into what would be his greatest work, "In Cold Blood." He arranges extensive interviews with the convicted killers, especially with Perry Smith.

That conflict and the mixed motives for both interviewer and subject make for a troubling experience that would produce an literary account that would redefine modern non-fiction

Alors qu'il tente d'acquérir un lanceur de premier plan, l'ex-joueur de baseball divorcé et père d'une adolescente fait la connaissance de Peter Brand, un économiste issu de l'université Yale. Celui-ci a créé une formule mathématique permettant d'identifier, au moyen de statistiques rigoureuses, les joueurs de la ligue susceptibles de former l'équipe la plus performante. Sans tenir compte de l'opinion de ses recruteurs, Beane l'embauche sur le champ et fait sur ses conseils appel à des laissés-pour-compte. Après un début de saison désastreux, au cours duquel Beane en découd avec l'entraîneur buté de l'équipe, les Athletics consolident leurs forces et remontent la pente. Durant la saison 2002, ils battront le record du plus grand nombre de victoires consécutives. [(c) Médiafilm].
