Academy Award-winning drama directed by and starring Clint Eastwood. Frankie Dunn (Eastwood), a down-on-his-luck former boxing manager, runs a small gym in downtown Los Angeles. One day, Maggie Fitzgerald (Hilary Swank) enters Frankie's gym and announces she needs a trainer. Frankie doesn't think much of women boxing and Maggie lacks experience and has no technique. However, she sees boxing as her one chance at a better life and won't give up easily
Clint Eastwood's 25th film as a director, Million Dollar Baby stands proudly with Unforgiven and Mystic River as the masterwork of a great American filmmaker. In an age of bloated spectacle and computer-generated effects extravaganzas, Eastwood turns an elegant screenplay by Paul Haggis (adapted from the book Rope Burns: Stories From the Corner by F.X. Toole, a pseudonym for veteran boxing manager Jerry Boyd) into a simple, humanitarian example of classical filmmaking, as deeply felt in its heart-wrenching emotions as it is streamlined in its character-driven storytelling. In the course of developing powerful bonds between "white-trash" Missouri waitress and aspiring boxer Maggie Fitzgerald (Hilary Swank), her grizzled, reluctant trainer Frankie Dunn (Eastwood), and Frankie's best friend and training-gym partner Eddie "Scrap-Iron" Dupris (Morgan Freeman), 74-year-old Eastwood mines gold from each and every character, resulting in stellar work from his well-chosen cast. Containing deep reserves of love, loss, and the universal desire for something better in hard-scrabble lives, Million Dollar Baby emerged, quietly and gracefully, as one of the most acclaimed films of 2004, released just in time to earn an abundance of year-end accolades, all of them well-deserved. --Jeff Shannon

The story begins as a typical yarn about a young woman from the wrong side of the tracks who has a dream, a relentless determination and self-belief to make something of herself through boxing. She persuades the grizzly trainer played by Clint Eastward to take her on and Morgan Freeman narrates with his hallmark understated, commanding tones.
The film knocks the wind out of you when it takes a turn that is completely unexpected and leaves you numbed with shock as the tragic events unfurl.
The performances by all the lead characters are superb and the film's impact will stay with you for a long time.
The film wasn't what I expected at all, but I found it very fulfilling. At the end it was quite haunting, not least because of the twists towards the end. It was steady as well, not lingering for longer than necessary on details but telling the story well. The other chracters in the film also demanded sympathy and revulsion, but all were interesting and relevent characters in the story.
The ending was haunting but incredibly poignant. This film was impressive, excellently crafted and definately worthwhile seeing, not least for the excellent performances of the cast.
There is a superb script by Paul Haggis who has recently written and directed Crash to much acclaim.
Direction here though is by Mr Eastwood himself and it is not hard to see why he won the Best Director Oscar for this.
His acting as Frank, the grizzled manager, is also fine and must rank as one of his best performances. Hilary Swank as Maggie, the female fighter, is also fantastic and brings the character completely to life. Another deserved Oscar-winning performance.
Morgan Freeman provides top support and Clint also wrote the music for this.The movie lasts over two hours but the time just flies in.
This really is a 'must see' movie.
