    Cinderella Man

    Post by Boris on Sat 12 Apr 2014, 9:35 am

    Watched it yesterday, a real, true 'Rocky' type story of an Irish/American boxer in the Depression era of the 1920's/30's, who was down and out, lost all his money and was destitute. Boxer was Jim Braddock, played by Russell Crowe...he then gets a luck break and somehow ends up becoming World Champion. To be fair Crowe is excellent and I found it quite moving. Makes you want to research further the real story..8.5/10
