What are good films for teaching data-driven decision making? In one of my classes, I asked my students to watch Moneyball at home and we discussed it in the class. It was successful and they learned much more than they could by reading a chapter of a textbook. Are there films with similar theme suitable for my purpose?

Not a movie, but there is a TV series named "numb3rs", where each episode features a different mathematical model used by the protagonist. – SHASHANK GUPTA – 2016-08-14T10:49:19.303

Numb3rs was ridiculous. He'd have five or six robbery locations, then go "I'm going to use spatial statistics" and then pinpoint the front door of the next robbery. Which is of course where the next robbery happened. I've not seen Moneyball but whenever I've seen stats in a movie it's always been followed by me face-palming (p<0.01). – Spacedman – 2016-08-17T15:14:23.887
