My rating: ****
The acting in Cinderella Man is stellar. Russell Crow and Rene Zellwegger lead a superb cast that few movies can compete with. The movie itself is based on the life of a boxer during the Depression. I hate boxing. I love history, though, and that was enough to allow me to enjoy the movie. The boxing part really was the least interesting to me. Watching Crow and Zellwegger work through their poverty as a family is what kept me interested. They succeeded, and the movie was an all around heartwarming underdog story. I recommend it.
