1/ Mark Wahlberg ~ I'm married. I'm not blind.
2/ Christian Bale ~ I may have scolded him on this blog for being a jerk but to say he can act is the understatement of the century.
3/ Melissa Leo as trashy, bleached, chain smoking Alice Ward
4/ The seven women who play Micky Ward's trashy, teased, unfortunate complexioned sisters
5/ Amy Adams as Micky Ward's girlfriend who's got b-a-l-l-s
6/ The true story of Micky Ward ~ a story of overcoming odds
7/ and his brother Dicky Eklund ~ a story of overcoming addiction
Today, I am grateful ~
