Cinderella Man in DVD and Theaters
I was surprised when the film Cinderella Man was released in June. A film of this quality is usually saved for the late December release, to get as much attention as possible for Oscar consideration. Then the celebrity factor kicked in. Russell Crowe, the star of the film, behaved badly in NYC on a PR tour. If you look beyond the gossip and bad behavior off camera, you will find a wonderful film. Well written, outstanding acting and beautifully shot. This is some of the best work I've seen out of Howard, Zellweger and Giamatti. I really hope more people see this film, out in DVD today. It is also being re-released to theaters in some areas. Well worth a look.
