Million Dollar Baby - Review

With Clint Eastwood’s latest directorial effort just about to hit cinemas, now is the time to revisit his mesmerising, awardwinning 2004 drama, which, much like The Changeling, is about a young woman struggling against the odds.

Hardened boxing trainer Frankie Dunn (Eastwood) reluctantly starts to help a determined female fighter (Hilary Swank, who won an Oscar for the role) realise her dream of becoming a champion.

Not the female Rocky that most people expect, Million Dollar Baby is as much about the uncertain nature of family as it is a boxing movie, and ultimately unleashes a sucker punch that will leave you gasping for air.
