The inspirational story of World Champion Boxer Vinny Pazienza, who after a near fatal car crash, which left him not knowing if he'd ever walk again, made one of sports most incredible comebacks.
There's just something about boxing that inspires such great storytelling on the big screen. On the one hand, there's the immediacy and no-nonsense nature of the activity: pummeling your fellow combatant into submission. And on the other, there's an endless stream of heroic (and tragic) characters: modern-day gladiators who find themselves fighting personal demons in addition to their physical opponents. Here's a stirring look at '80s boxing sensation Vinny Pazienza (Miles Teller) and his quest to regain a second shot at glory in the ring.
