Synopsis by Violet LeVoit

This biopic details the long, strange trip of '70s southpaw pitcher and counterculture advocate Bill "Spaceman" Lee (played here by Josh Duhamel) in the years following his retirement from Major League Baseball, after he was dropped by the Montreal Expos in 1982 for his iconoclastic behavior on and off the field. Directed by Brett Rapkin, who traveled to Cuba with Lee while making the 2006 documentary Spaceman: A Baseball Odyssey.
