CINDERELLA MAN takes the almost impossibly perfect elements of the saga of underdog boxer James J. Braddock and fills it with emotional gravitas, wrenching danger, and a panoramic sense of American life during the Great Depression.
Most serious movies live in a world of cynicism and irony and most good-hearted movie characters live in bad movies. Here is a movie where a good man prevails in a world where every day is an invitation to despair.
A superbly acted, beautifully shot, highly engaging drama that ranks as one of director Ron Howard’s best efforts.
