Lou Benedetti, a world class boxer, loves people, but he can only speak without a stutter when he's inviting violent confrontation into his life. When a head injury robs Lou of his boxing license, his only hope at a future is as a fight trainer for the upcoming Golden Gloves. Unfortunately, his speech impediment is magnified under the pressure of 30 second round breaks. Lou has 2 weeks to lose his stutter and overcome a lifetime of sociopath behavior.

Oscar worthy. Ethereal and genuinely moving with some unexpected moments of humor and unabashed honesty.
5 April 2003 | by (California) – See all my reviews

In his feature debut as actor/ director, Bret Carr succeeds magnificently, and on a number of levels, with an inspiring, Oscar worthy performance. The finesse with which he conveys his moods and emotions is extraordinary; he enables you to `feel' his displacement, share his compassion, sense his empathy and know his anger. Quite simply, Carr makes Lou Benedetti a character you are not going to forget. The film is a classic character transformation. Raw and at the same time ethereal and genuinely moving with some unexpected moments of humor and unabashed honesty. A ten out of ten.
