Maggie (Swank) is a 30-year-old waitress who wants to be a boxer. Frankie Dunn (Eastwood) is the man, she decides, to help her acheive her dreams.
Million Dollar Baby is a movie about hope, friendship and responsibility.
Eastwood has crafted a wonderful movie, using the world of boxing as the backdrop.
Filmed in his typical no-nonsense style, Million Dollar Baby takes the viewer through a wonderful ride. You empathise with Maggie as she punches her way towards her dreams.
Coupled with Mystic River, Million Dollar Baby gives us a new Clint Eastwood – more mature, and much more deep.
