The knock­out tal­ent be­hind A Beau­ti­ful

Mind – Rus­sell Crowe, di­rec­tor Ron Howard and writer Akiva Golds­man – come out swing­ing in an­other stir­ring biopic of tri­umph against the odds. Crowe plays De­pres­sion-era New Jer­sey boxer Jim Brad­dock. In 1933, Jim is stripped of his box­ing li­cence and fi­nan­cially pinned against the ropes, but de­ter­mined to sup­port his wife ( Renée Zell­weger) and fam­ily. While scrap­ing to­gether a pit­tance, Brad­dock is in­vited back into the ring as a last-minute re­place­ment in a heavy­weight bout and uses sub­se­quent vic­to­ries to gain a shot at the ti­tle. One of the best Hol­ly­wood films in many years.
