We gave it an A-

A drama of tough excitement and surprise, even grace. Maggie (Hilary Swank), a diner waitress, works out at the dilapidated gym run by Frankie (Clint Eastwood), then pesters the crusty ringside veteran into managing her. If you think you know where Eastwood’s film is headed — have no fear, you don’t.
