Cinderella Man (2005)

“I have to believe that when things are bad, I can change them” – and that he did. A stellar cast including Russell Crowe, Paul Giamatti, and Renee Zellweger made this film into a hit and earned three Academy Award nominations. Throughout the duration of the film, we fall in love with the Braddock family as they fight to make it through the Great Depression. With his family in mind, Jim Braddock (Crowe) re-enters the ring with the hope of securing his families’ future. After winning fight after fight, Braddock becomes the hero for the little guy and soon rises to the top. With only one man to beat, it becomes his most important fight as his opponent is not only a heavyweight champion, but has already killed two people in the ring. As well as highlighting the clear lack of health & safety in the sport during the 1920’s, the film manages to keep you gripped both in and outside of the ring.
