Every day, find the program of films and series to see on TV. Tonight: Clint Eastwood as a boxing coach, the return of the Gallo family to TF1, the finale of “Gomorra”, the Palme d’Or by David Lynch and a biopic on Mozart.
THE FILM OF THE DAY
With Million Dollar Baby, Clint Eastwood signs one of his most beautiful films – in any case the most poignant. More than a dive into the world of boxing, it is a great melodrama, moving and tragic, which never falls into pathos. Hilary Swank, who gained 9 kilos of muscle after intense physical training, is absolutely overwhelming.
Considered Clint Eastwood’s finest achievement, Million Dollar Baby ranks in second position (just behind Gran Torino) among the best films of its filmography with an average audience rating of 4.4 out of 5. In addition to this immense public success, the film also won 4 Oscars (including those for Best Picture and Best Director).
