Plot / Synopsis
Crowe stars in the story inspired by the life of legendary athlete Jim Braddock, a once-promising light heavyweight boxer forced into retirement after a string of losses in the ring. As the nation enters the darkest years of the Great Depression, Braddock accepts a string of dead-end jobs to support his wife, Mae [Renee Zellweger], and their children, while never totally abandoning his dream of boxing again.

Thanks to a last-minute concellation, Braddock finds himself back in the rings against the second-ranked world contender- and the everyone's amazement, Braddock wins in the third round. Despite being pounds lighter than his opponents and repeated injuries to his hands, Braddock continues to fight against challengers and win. Carrying on his shoulders the hopes and dreams of the disenfranchised, Braddock, dubbed the 'Cinderella Man,' faces his toughest challenger in Max Baer [Craig Bierko], the heavyweight champion of the world, renowned for having killed two men in the ring.
