This is the biography of James Braddock a light heavy weight boxer from New York. The terrible poverty suffered by him his family and those around will make you feel hungry. If you eat afterwards you can empathise his family's pain. Boxing films can be dramatically good though there are a few dreadful ones. This is one which is full of period atmosphere and gripping drama. Crowe is brilliant, Zellweger isn't too bad either.
