Million Dollar Baby



Last night we watched Million Dollar Baby. It's beautifully filmed and superbly acted by Hilary Swank, Morgan Freeman & Clint Eastwood. A tragic story about achievement, ambition, forgiveness and life (and not really about boxing). Well worth its four oscar (best Director, Film, Lead Actress, Supporting Actor) - even though it left Eternal Sunshine with just one (Screenplay).

Top films seen this year then: (in no particular order, yet) The Village, Garden State, Enduring Love, Million Dollar Baby, Closer, Collateral, Hitchhikers, Batman Begins, The Interpreter...

Most of which are really last years films. Halfway through the year I'm not very optimistic of much improvement.
