Cinderella Man. 2005. USA. Directed by Ron Howard. With Russell Crowe, Renée Zellweger, Paul Giamatti. 144 min.
Struggling to support his family during the Great Depression, washed-up boxer James J. Braddock (Russell Crowe) stages a comeback, and in turn becomes a folk hero. Based on a true story, director Ron Howard’s portrait of redemption amid turmoil is deeply heartfelt and earnest. Wynn Thomas, in his second collaboration with Ron Howard following A Beautiful Mind, crafted meticulous period details on a grand scale, from Braddock’s sparse New Jersey family home to the dazzling exterior of Madison Square Garden.
