Million Dollar Baby Film Overview

Frankie finally decides that Maggie is ready for the next level. Frankie is hesitant, not wanting her to get hurt. As the days pass, Maggie develops bedsores and undergoes an amputation for an infected leg.

Frankie begrudgingly accepts a fight for her against a top-ranked opponent in the UK, where he bestows a Gaelic nickname on her. To keep Maggie from trying to bite her tongue again, the staff sedates Maggie heavily. The film played in theaters for six and a half months.

The synopsis below may give away important plot points. Maggie tells them to take a hike. He never returned to the gym and I never saw him again. Irish for "my darling, and my blood" literally, "my pulse". She asks if he remembers the story she told him about her father and their dog.

In the championship fight, Maggie boxes against the current middleweight champion. The doctors save her and stitch her tongue back up.

She asks a favor of Frankie: After Frankie turns down a series of title fight offers, Scrap secretly sets up an "accidental" meeting between Maggie and Mickey Mack, the manager who nabbed Big Willie.

Several studios rejected the project even when Eastwood signed on as actor and director. Out of loyalty, she declines. She had her chance at glory and wants to die remembering the crowd cheering her name.

She rips the stitches out and tries it again. Maggie trains with Frankie for several months and her skills improve greatly. Before entering the ring the first time, he gives her a new fight robe with a Gaelic phrase on it.

It is translated in the film as "my darling, my blood", although an Irish Gaelic translation site states that it is always translated as "pulse", not as "blood". Overcoming a shaky start, Maggie begins to dominate the fight, but after a round has ended, Billie knocks her out with an illegal sucker punch from behind after the bell has sounded to indicate the end of the round.

Eventually Frankie and Maggie come together realizing that the other can fill that void in their lives. The referee warns her that next time she will be disqualified. Maggie is extremely determined to prove Frankie wrong, along with the rest of her family.

He also pens letters to his estranged daughter Katy, which always return unopened. Frankie feels like, at this point, keeping Maggie alive is killing her.

The title holder is not only aggressive and tough but also fights dirty. As she falls to the mat, Maggie hits her head on her corner stool.Critics Consensus: Clint Eastwood's assured direction - combined with knockout performances from Hilary Swank and Morgan Freeman - help Million Dollar Baby to transcend its clichés, and the 90%().
