Game 6 is a movie that follows around Michael Keaton, a play write on the day of his newest play's opening night. It also happens to be game 6 of the 1986 world series, aka Bill Buckner. The playwrite, friend, critic, mistress, daughter, and cabbies cross paths.
The three lead actors, Michael Keaton, Robert Downey Jr. and Bebe Neuwirth, worked for a discounted salary, $100 per day, on this film.
When the Mets lose, they just lose. It's a flat feeling; there's nothing there. Now the Red Sox, now, here, we have a rich history of really fascinating ways to lose a crucial game. You know what I mean? Defeats that just keep you awake at night. They pound in your head like the hammer of fate. Yeah, you can analyze a Red Sox game day and night for a month and still uncover really complex layers of feelings. Feelings you didn't even know you were capable of having. Yeah. That kind of pain has a memory all of its own.
