I didn’t expect to be crying so much, or at all, going to a movie about a boxer.
I love Antoine Fuqua as I worked with him on Tears of the Sun.
He is an actor’s director as you can tell by these performances.
The story line surprised me and I am grateful for him telling this story amid the machismo of the boxing world.
It stars Rachel McAdams who I love from The Notebook, which also stars Ryan Gosling.
The lead is played by Jake Gyllenhaal and Forest Whitaker co-stars.
I also liked the social worker, Angela Rivera, played by British actress Naomie Harris.
