"I don't train girls," growls boxing trainer Frankie Dunn. But something's different about the spirited boxing hopeful who shows up daily at Dunn's gym. All she wants is a fighting chance.

Clint Eastwood plays Dunn and also directs, produces and composes music for this controversial and acclaimed, multi-award-winning tale of heart, hope and family. Eastwood received an Oscar nomination for his acting, an Academy Award for his directing, and the film also captured the "Best Picture."

Oscar winner Hilary Swank plays resilient Maggie, determined not to abandon her one dream. And Morgan Freeman (who grabbed his own Oscar) is Scrap, gym caretaker and counterpoint to Dunn's crustiness. Grab your dreams and come out swinging.
