When I was originally lent a copy of 'Million Dollar Baby' I must admit I wasn't sure that I'd actually watch it. The voice in my head was telling me, 'It's a movie about a woman who punches people, you'll hate it.' However, when have I ever listened to the voices in my head.
It truly is a wonderful film. Painful, but wonderful. If you haven't already seen it then I'd heartily recommend it.
