USA, 1976. Directed by John G. Avildsen. 122 min. PG
In 1976, when Rocky, a low-budget film with an unknown actor named Sylvester Stallone, won the Academy Award for Best Picture, it was as emotional a finale as the film itself. A two-bit boxer gets a second chance in life by being offered an impossible shot at the heavyweight title. The story of how Rocky goes the distance is one of the warmest, most exciting, and stirring movies of all time.
