It’s strange how some re­ally good movies can slip un­der the radar, largely ig­nored by cin­ema go­ing au­di­ences. Cin­derella Man is one of these movies, a rare gem of a film that some­how went un­no­ticed and didn’t per­form well at the box of­fice (al­though it was even­tu­ally nom­i­nated for a few Academy Awards). The film is based on the true story of boxer James J. Brad­dock and his re­mark­able win over reign­ing heavy­weight cham­pion Max Bauer in 1935. Brad­dock faced ex­treme poverty dur­ing the Great De­pres­sion and be­came a na­tional sen­sa­tion when his rags-to-riches story be­came public knowl­edge. The film stars Rus­sell Crowe, Paul Gia­matti, Re­nee Zell­weger and Rose­marie DeWitt (Brad­dock’s real-life grand­daugh­ter).
