In the world of cinema, some movies leave an indelible mark, with certain scenes etched into our memories forever. These moments resonate deeply with us, whether they defined our childhood, triggered our laughter or tears, or simply made us ponder life’s complexities.
For me, that film is The Champ from 1979 – a timeless classic that I watched with my mother and still discuss fondly to this day.
The story revolves around T.J., a young, blond, and endearing boy who only wants the best for his father, Billy. Billy is a retired boxer who decides to step back into the ring to secure a better future for himself and his son. He wants to settle his debts and reconcile with his ex-wife.
