Synopsis:
In the wake of a painful estrangement from his daughter, boxing trainer Frankie Dunn has been unwilling to let himself get close to anyone for a very long time - then Maggie Fitzgerald walks into his gym. In a life of constant struggle, Maggie's gotten herself this far on raw talent, unshakable focus and a tremendous force of will. But more than anything, she wants someone to believe in her. The last thing Frankie needs is that kind of responsibility - let alone that kind of risk - but won over by Maggie's sheer determination, he begrudgingly agrees to take her on.
In turns exasperating and inspiring each other, the two come to discover that they share a common spirit that transcends the pain and loss of their pasts, and they find in each other a sense of family they lost long ago. Yet, they both face a battle that will demand more heart and courage than any they've ever known.

Rocky rollercoatster - Million Dollar Baby review by JD

Spoiler Alert
22/04/2010

An unexpected gem. This is well worth watching. One of Clint's less famous films but I would say his best. The female boxer Hilary Swank is very endearing and her struggle to achieve recognition is enveloping. I found some of the closing scenes extremely emotional and have rarely finished a film so drained of emotion. All the characters are underachievers and all full of unstated passion. How these three (Freeman is particularly understated) manage to covey so much so quietly I can only admire.
