Million Dollar Baby

Beneath its discreet aesthetics and emotional tug lurks a rather cliched tale, the economy of expression not wishing away the underlying melodrama.

Starring: Clint Eastwood, Hillary Swank, Morgan Freeman
Director: Clint Eastwood
Rating: ***

The best thing about Million Dollar Baby is the way it has been shot. The shadowy frames echo the grimy high-tension feel of a boxing ring. The straightforward, no-nonsense story-telling is pleasantly old-worldly. In fact, there is a uniformly measured stone to the film which makes it poignant.
