Overview

Jake Gyllenhaal stars as troubled boxer Billy Hope in this high-stakes drama from director Antoine Fuqua and SONS OF ANARACHY creator Kurt Sutter. At the height of his fame and success, Hope is convinced by his loving wife Maureen (Rachel McAdams) to retire from the sport in order to spend more time with the couple's daughter Leila (Oona Laurence). On the night of his retirement announcement, a rival boxer calls out Hope and an altercation breaks out, killing Maureen. Hope's self-destructive behavior worsens, and Leila is taken away by child services. In order to redeem his life and get his daughter back, Hope must return to boxing under the tutelage of hardened trainer Titus "Tick" Willis (Forest Whitaker).

Reviews:
"Gyllenhaal goes deep with his performance, with a touch of Brando-esque mumbling in his line deliveries, and some bursts of rage that would make Sean Penn blush." - 07/23/2015 Chicago Sun-Times


3 stars out of 4 -- "The increasingly remarkable Jake Gyllenhaal transforms himself yet again as Billy Hope, a boxing champion near the end of his career." - 07/24/2015 RogerEbert.com


"[R]edeemed by Gyllenhaal's virtuoso performance....The externals -- scars, tattoos and slurred voice -- don't begin to suggest the emotional depths Gyllenhaal brings to the part of a bruiser on the ropes." - 07/23/2015 Rolling Stone


"Jake Gyllenhaal throws everything he’s got into the ring, delivering a knockout performance." - 07/21/2015 Total Film


"Jake Gyllenhaal undergoes yet another startling physical transformation in SOUTHPAW....He grunts and punches and scratches and glares it in, bleeding copiously in set pieces that thud and splatter with woozy, percussively potent verisimilitude." - 07/23/2015 Washington Post
