Million Dollar BabyTime has flown by since Million Dollar Baby won the Academy Award for Best Motion Picture in 2004, but now we have this 10th Anniversary Blu-ray.

Directed and starring Clint Eastwood (Trouble With the Curve), the drama movie follows Eastwood’s Frankie Dunn, a hardened boxing trainer who’s given up on the professional circuit until Maggie Fitzgerald (Hilary Swank, Conviction) walks into his gym. Maggie talks him into training her, and they form a bond that goes beyond the ring.

The PG-13 movie also stars Morgan Freeman (The Dark Knight Rises), Jay Baruchel (This Is the End), Anthony Mackie (Pain & Gain) and Michael Pena (End of Watch).

Million Dollar Baby also won an Oscar for Hilary Swank as Best Actress, Morgan Freeman as Best Supporting Actor and Eastwood as Best Director. It was also nominated Eastwood as Best Actor, the adapted screenplay by Paul Haggis (The Next Three Days) and the film editing by Joel Cox.

The 10th Anniversary Blu-ray contains two new special features:

  • Million Dollar Baby: On the Ropes,” with Eastwood, Freeman and Swank discussing how the movie overcame difficulties
  • commentary by producer Albert Ruddy.

The disc also carries extras that are on the film’s original Blu-ray release:

  • “James Lipton Takes on Three”
  • “A Roundtable With Clint Eastwood, Hilary Swank, Morgan Freeman and Moderator James Lipton”
  • “Born to Fight”
  • “A Discussion With Real-Life Boxer/Actress Lucia Rijker”
