A League Of Their Own (1992)

A League Of Their Own (1992)

The siblings: Dottie Hinson (Geena Davis) and Kit Keller (Lori Petty)

What puts them at odds? Dottie, who’s pretty, proper, popular and a heck of a ball player, overshadows her younger sister Kit, who is pushing for her own moment in the limelight.

It’s professional rivalry that’s the problem here, although there’s a sense that Kit has been under orders to measure up to her sister’s standards long before league baseball became a prospect. Dottie’s the immediate star, and when she becomes de facto coach of the sisters’ team Kit begins to seriously resent her elder sister’s success and feel that it’s standing in the way of her own progress. Their final confrontation on the field, where Dottie drops a ball and Kit’s new team wins the league, allows Kit the success she’s craved – but there’s always been a question in our minds whether the sticky-handed Dottie fumbled the catch on purpose and gave her sister the victory.

Which sibling is your favourite?
