Million Dollar Baby (4 stars)

This multiple Oscar winner follows a determined young athlete who, through her sheer determination, awakens a long-lost fire within two aging boxers. Despondent over a painful estrangement from his daughter, trainer Frankie Dunn (Clint Eastwood) isn’t prepared for boxer Maggie Fitzgerald (Hilary Swank) to enter his life. Maggie’s determined to go pro, and she eventually convinces Dunn and his cohort (Morgan Freeman) to help her get to the top.

Geoff’s Comments: I really enjoyed this, as sad as it was, for the humanity, honestly and sincerity of the characters. It was refreshing to finally see it and understand what the buzz was all about.
