leave a comment »

Cinderella Man imageRussell Crowe stars as pugilist Jim Braddock in this riveting biopic created by the Academy Award-winning team of producer Brian Grazer, director Ron Howard and screenwriter Akiva Goldsman. Braddock, who garnered boxing glory when he defeated champion Max Baer in a winner-takes-all bout, arrived on the scene during the Great Depression (a time when Americans were woefully in need of a hero) and rose to the occasion with a vengeance.”

Geoff’s Comments: Wonderfully filmed and acted. A stirring and exciting hero story, with a lead character worthy of any man’s admiration.
