Easily one of the year's best, Sugar is an intelligent and sublimely moving film that should not be missed.""""
- Claudia Puig, USA Today
Algenis Perez Soto plays the character so openly, so naturally, that an interesting thing happens? Baseball is only the backdrop, not the subject. This is a wonderful film.""""
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times
In its unhurried fashion, Sugar can take its place with the best baseball movies. Where most focus on the grand slam, this one's about the life that surrounds the game and everything that comes after.""""
- Ty Burr, Boston Globe


Sugar follows the story of Miguel Santos, a.k.a. Sugar, a Dominican pitcher from San Pedro De Macorís, struggling to make it to the big leagues and pull himself and his family out of poverty. Playing professionally at a baseball academy in the Dominican Republic, Miguel finally gets his break at age 19 when he advances to the United States’ minor league system; but when his play on the mound falters, he begins to question the single-mindedness of his life’s ambition.
