Million Dollar Baby

Wow. I was not expecting this. There is a plot twist here that knocked the wind out of me. This is a "small" movie, low budget, pure story, no flash or special effects, and it really shows how all the flash just tries to hide the fact that there isn't much of a story. With this movie it was all story and character and Morgan Freeman, Clint Eastwood and Hillary Swank were a flawless team. This is one of those movies for which the impact grows on you over the next couple of days. I was so glad that Hillary Swank won the Golden Globes, so incredibly well deserved.
