Million Dollar Baby
Clint Eastwood is directing and starring beside Hilary Swank and Morgan Freeman in a strong drama that won four Oscars including Best Film and Directing in 2005.
In contrast to "Mystic River", Clint Eastwood is also in front of the camera where he plays the aging boxing coach Frankie Dunn, who reluctantly takes Maggie Fitzgerald (Hilary Swank) in his booth. For Maggie, boxing becomes an escape from her previously miserable "white trash" life. For Frankie, she is the last chance to deliver a great champion. On the cast list, we also see Morgan Freeman, the retired boxer who now runs Frankie's gym.
