WED­NES­DAY SOUTH­PAW

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

8.30PM, FOX­TEL PRE­MIERE ★★★

Box­ing movies don’t have to re-in­vent any wheels. But they must keep those wheels spin­ning. If South­paw gets that job done while com­plet­ing a fa­mil­iar riches-to-rags-tore­demp­tion tra­jec­tory, it is all due to Jake Gyl­len­haal. His is a heavy­weight per­for­mance in an oth­er­wise ju­nior-mid­dleweight af­fair. Gyl­len­haal plays Billy Hope, a for­mer un­de­feated champ who loses more than just his per­fect record in the trou­bled twi­light of his ca­reer.
