A fantastic story about a young woman (Michelle Rodriguez) who wants to reach beyond her seemingly small life through boxing. To hear the description of a movie about a girl boxer who has to fight the boy boxer she’s just fallen in love with, you might expect a cheese ball teenage flick. Not so! This movie is unbelievably good.
