million dollar baby

It rained the whole day today without letting up, not even once, so we stayed in and kept warm and dry. The little man was busy alternating his time between his toys and the computer and the husband was resting so I was basically free to do what I wanted to do. And so I decided to watch the movie Million Dollar Baby. I did not read the teaser so I did not know what to expect. I was hoping for a happy ending but it was not meant to be. I did not cry though which was a surprise, lol. It was depressing that a woman who only wanted one thing, was given the chance to realize her dream, and that certain dream was actually within reach met such an agonizing fate. Somehow it made me feel bleak. The husband who checked what I was doing watched the remaining minutes of the movie with me. He was quiet until I told him what happened, why the lead actor was in a hospital bed paralyzed from the neck down. Then he started getting animated. Well, it sure was a good movie and if I am not mistaken, Hillary Swank actually won an award for her portrayal of a female boxer in the movie. I just don't think it was the right movie to watch in a such a gloomy day.

I think I have seen this movie already but I can't really remember how it ended..but I guess this is a nice one since it won a lot of awards from the Oscars..
