Cinderella Man


Howard, Goldsman and Crowe are back with another biopic, this time about a boxer rather than a mathematician. We pick up the story in 1928, where an up-and-coming young boxer's career hits the skids just as the depression years hit America. As he struggles to find work to support his young family, he eventually persuades the promoters to give him another shot at boxing. His career turnaround proved a rallying point for struggling Americans, much as Seabiscuit's victories did.
