Summary: "In boxing lore, there have been few comeback stories as inspirational as the precipitous fall and equally dramatic ascension of Depression-era fighter James J. Braddock" (Hollywood Reporter). Russell Crowe soars in his depiction of Braddock, New Jersey's "Bulldog of Bergen" whose career downturn coincided with the onset of the Great Depression in 1929. Injured and desperate to provide for his wife Mae (Renee Zellweger) and three kids, Braddock was forced to give up the sport he loved to work on the docks-until his former manager Joe Gould (Paul Giamatti) gave him one last shot in the ring. Armed with his heart and a newly developed left hook, Braddock began a comeback that would electrify a nation as he slugged his way toward a showdown with menacing heavyweight champion Max Baer (Craig Bierko). Also with Bruce McGill and Paddy Considine. Directed by Ron Howard; written by Cliff Hollingsworth and Akiva Goldsman, story by Cliff Hollingsworth. Nominated for 2005 Oscars(R) for Best Editing, Best Makeup and Best Supporting Actor (Giamatti). (PG13) (AL,V)
