Resurrecting the Champ

If you can't tell, I'm on a short break from the road trips. As much as I have enjoyed the travel and the company, I'm spending this 90+ degree weekend in my favorite place, the movie theater!

This morning I started out with Resurrecting the Champ . Initially, I thought I was seeing a sports film, but it turns out this story was much more. A sports writer happens on a homeless man who appears to be a washed up boxing legend. The real story is about journalism (get the facts), hero worship, family, love and responsibility. Another film with a lot of talent attached, Samuel L. Jackson and Josh Hartnett are outstanding.
