I could watch this movie every day. It is a very emotional journey that you go through alongside this older female boxer and her trainer. The two of them make a very odd pair, which at times is a bit comical to see their interactions. As the story continues their relationship becomes more of a father-daughter relationship. The ending is very sad, and the first time I watched this movie I honestly was surprised by the outcome. Yet, it seemed almost better that way, more real I guess. I would definitely recommend this movie to just about anyone, except maybe kids because of the fighting. But it is definitely not a chick flick, at least it did not seem that way to me. It is emotional because the director does an incredible job of connecting with the characters so much that you begin to find yourself being mad at who they are mad at and laughing at what they laugh at. If you have not seen this movie, just give it a chance. You will not be disappointed.
