Hilary Swank's performance in million dollar baby, made me believe that anything is possible with hard work and dedication. A woman with nothing but the clothes on her back and the food in her stomach, she still made it a priority to follow her dreams. As she quickly fought her way to the top and became an overnight success she found the injuries and risks that came along with boxing. After she became paralyzed she lost some of her fight, some of her will power that got her to the top. Clint Eastwood's raw performance in this film is as real to life as it gets, as he goes through with the unthinkable request of Maggie to end her life. This is my all time favorite film because of these remarkable performances and the way the story is told about Maggie Fitzgerald.
