Dir. Antoine Fuqua l Drama | U.S.A. | 2015 | 119 min.
From director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, Brooklyn’s Finest) and writer Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy) comes one of this year’s most anticipated films. A brutally offensive fighter infatuated with glory, Billy “The Great” Hope (Jake Gyllenhaal) achieves boxing greatness only to find his family and mental stability torturously dissolving. Callous and disillusioned in the wake of his wife’s death, he plunges into a haze of drugs and alcohol that seems to finish what remains of his reputation. He has one opportunity left to rebuild his life and regain custody of his daughter. With the help of a fiercely disciplined trainer, he returns to the ring. Forest Whitaker, Rachel McAdams, Naomie Harris, and 50 Cent co-star.
