Director: Karyn Kusama
Starring: Michelle Rodriguez, Jaime Tirelli, Paul Calderon
A troubled, violent 18-year-old girl (Rodriguez) with an abusive father discovers boxing and channels her rage in the ring. We don't usually go for chicks who could black our eyes, but Rodriguez's performance is a knockout, even if her character's kinda mannish.
YOU AUGHTA KNOW:
Rodriguez beat out over 300 other women for the part in her first audition ever.
