Million Dollar Baby Movie Synopsis

In the wake of a painful estrangement from his daughter, boxing trainer Frankie Dunn (Clint Eastwood) has been unwilling to let himself get close to anyone for a very long time - then Maggie Fitzgerald (Hilary Swank) walks into his gym. In a life of constant struggle, Maggie's gotten herself this far on raw talent, unshakable focus and a tremendous force of will. But more than anything, she wants someone to believe in her.

The last thing Frankie needs is that kind of responsibility - let alone that kind of risk - but won over by Maggie's sheer determination, he begrudgingly agrees to take her on. In turns exasperating and inspiring each other, the two come to discover that they share a common spirit that transcends the pain and loss of their pasts, and they find in each other a sense of family they lost long ago. Yet, they both will face a battle that will demand more heart and courage than any they've ever known.

A classic!

this was an amazing movie!! It`s so touching ..clint eastwood did a great job

Everything about this movie is so amazing, inspirational and loving that it cannot be described in words. Character development, vocal, cinematography, and screenplay rocked!!! Hilary Swank, and Clint Eastwood were magical as well as Morgan Freeman who doesn`t need an introduction. The movie`s totally worth an Oscar!!!
