Million Dollar Baby

Watched it last evening. Great cast (Clint Eastwood, Hilary Swank, Morgan Freeman) and great story. Got me teary eyed, and really had me rooting for Maggie, the character played by Swank.

Two thirds of the movie follows a cliched storyline - girl wants to be a boxer, trainer refuses, girl persists, trainer relents, girl trains hard and starts winning, girl gets title shot - and thats when Eastwood works his magic. The story changes courses and becomes about something else entirely....

Hilary Swank is amazing as Maggie. I got me a new favorite actress. And she has an amazing smile.

Watch it....deserves the best movie title!
