Frankie Dunn is a veteran Los Angeles, California boxing trainer who keeps almost everyone at arm’s length, except his old friend and associate Eddie “Scrap-Iron” Dupris. When Maggie Fitzgerald arrives in Frankie’s gym seeking his expertise, he is reluctant to train the young woman, a transplant from working-class Missouri. Eventually, he relents, and the two form a close bond that will irrevocably change them both.
Clint Eastwood’s assured direction – combined with knockout performances from Hilary Swank and Morgan Freeman – help Million Dollar Baby to transcend its clichés, and the result is deeply heartfelt and moving.
