Product Description

"I DON'T TRAIN GIRLS", trainer Frankie Dunn growls. But something's different about the spirited boxing hopeful who shows up daily at Dunn's gym. All she wants is a fighting chance. Clint Eastwood plays Dunn and directs, produces and composes music for this acclaimed, multi-award-winning tale of heart, hope and family. Hilary Swank plays resilient Maggie, determined not to abandon her one dream. And Morgan Freeman is Scrap, gym caretaker and counterpoint to Dunn's crustiness. Grab your dreams and come out swinging.

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

To tell the truth, I had no real desire to see this film, even after it won Best Picture (I tend to be fairly unimpressed with the Oscar-dubbed "best" movies). I also had the impression that it was ultimately a very sad motion picture, and it's hard for me to watch sad movies. But - Morgan Freeman's in it, and (as I've said every time I review a Morgan Freeman movie), I consider Morgan Freeman to be the best actor working today. So I watched the movie. To say I was impressed and moved is an understatement. Million Dollar Baby is a truly magnificent film that does indeed hearken back to the old days when movies touched lives rather than merely entertained.

This movie plants its roots deeply into the human landscape, with the final hour riding a mighty wave of raw emotion. What began as a film suddenly transforms into something much more real. Much of the power of the whole story is subtly rendered, as past regrets lie hidden even as they influence everything that happens. Morgan Freeman is, of course, masterful in his co-starring role, and Hilary Swank more than deserved the Best Actress statuette she claimed at the Oscars. It is Clint Eastwood, though, who shines the brightest in this little universe of amazing stars. As producer and director as well as actor, he once again proves himself to be among the most gifted artists of all time. Much credit must also go the writer of the screenplay. The writing is well-nigh perfect, particularly in the way it brings disparate elements together in the end.

If I were to lay out the whole story, I could do it pretty quickly. It's amazing how the most powerful of movies usually feature the simplest of stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars new shoes?30$------Million Dollar Baby?priceless Oct. 25 2007
By falcon
Format:DVD
every once in awhile,a movie comes along that defies description.Clint
Eastwood's Million Dollar Baby is that movie.One of the best movies
ever made by one of the greatest directors,this is a movie that will
not leave you untouched.Paul Haggis(Crash) wrote the screenplay for
this cinematic treasure and the stage was set.with Eastwood as
Director,the next piece of puzzle was the cast.And what a cast.You have
Hilary Swank in a moving,powerhouse performance in the lead role.you
have Eastwood himself in a strong supporting role.and you have the great
Morgan freeman in an understated,but no less superb performance.these
three make it seem so effortless.the rest of the supporting players are
also strong.I don't want to give too much away,for those who haven't
had the pleasure yet.the basics of the film are as follows.Hilary Swank
is Maggie Fitzgerald,a woman who has nothing-but a desire to be a
boxer.Eastwood plays Frankie Dunn,a grizzled boxing trainer,hardened by
life.Morgan freeman is Eddie Dupris aka "Scrap",Frankie's lone friend
and Manager of his boxing club.Maggie walks into Frankie's life one
day,desperate for him to train her.Frankie refuses at first and Maggie
never gives up.Frankie finally relents(with a bit of help from
"scrap".and the stage is set.What follows is the growing relationship
between Maggie,Frankie and "Scrap" and the lessons they learn and teach
each other.until the end,with a closing act you won't soon(if ever)
forget.

Here we have a movie in which it opens up strangely. The trainer is known as boss but that's how he's known through the eyes of others. That's not really how he sees himself the film opens with a scene with a priest (rather unsubtle)
in which they discuss the trinity like a university undergraduate course, which shows the person's deep interest in religion..which they want to show in this film and he encounters a young girl who wants to be a boxer..and there's a line about the immaculate conception..as a person she seems almost too good..and there are a few scenes about a broken nose being fixed and he cracks it in place...the film tries to show a young female who wants to rise to the top in the boxing field...just like a man...and no one considers her since they dont think a woman should be hit or pounded..like a man..and she does get it pretty bad...one wonders why they emphasized the religious angle so much is it since only someone of that persuasion would help a young girl..not being patriarchial and doing what he thinks is good for her..but putting himself in her place and trying to help her realize her dreams...and really being the closest helper to her...and not being too gentle but relating to her like she was a man..with those special touches due to his unique character...it's really an old fashion story done up in modern mores and it gets depressing at the end as she is injured and bedridden..a movie which I believe had a good audience response...the characters of the trainer and the remainder of the cast are in two worlds..well actually there's one world..but two minds the one which he states at the beginning with his experience of the absolute and banters with the priest he seems not all that holy and believes someone who's come to church for 23 years has something to hid(?????)..
