|Southpaw – Featurette
From acclaimed director Antoine Fuqua (TRAINING DAY) and starring Academy AwardÂ® nominated Jake Gyllenhaal (NIGHTCRAWLER, BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN) comes a story of tragedy, loss and the painful road to redemption… Billy â€œThe Greatâ€� Hope (Gyllenhaal) is the reigning Junior Middleweight Champion whose unorthodox stance, the so-called â€œSouthpaw,â€� consists of an ineloquent, though brutal, display of offensive fighting… one fueled by his own feelings of inadequacy and a desperate need for love, money and fame. With a beautiful family, home and financial security, Billy is on top both in and out of the ring until a tragic accident leaves his wife dead and sends him into a downward spiral.
