10. Cinderella Man
Ron Howard’s 2005 movie about the life of professional boxer Jim Braddock is one of those stories that you can’t help but feel good about. Braddock is a boxer well past his prime in depression era America, when an entire nation is down on its luck and having difficulty getting by. Russell Crowe plays Braddock, the boxer who fights to earn money for his struggling family, because he doesn’t really know what else to do. In the process, he becomes a hero at a time when everybody needed to believe that they still existed. Paul Giamatti was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.
