Synopsis

Billy "The Great" Hope (Jake Gyllenhaal), the reigning junior middleweight boxing champion, has an impressive career, a loving wife and daughter, and a lavish lifestyle. However, when tragedy strikes, Billy hits rock bottom, losing his family, his house and his manager. He soon finds an unlikely saviour in Tick Willis (Forest Whitaker), a former fighter who trains the city's toughest amateur boxers. With his future on the line, Hope fights to reclaim the trust of those he loves the most.

My review

This film is great, I could watch it over and over. Southpaw is gripping and entertaining all the way through, I would definitely put it up there with Rocky. Southpaw is a must watch film.

Southpaw is still in cinemas and will be released on DVD later this year. Rated 15
