Samuel L. Jackson (1408) and Josh Hartnett (30 Days of Night) turn in knockout performances in this 'touchingly vibrant tale' (The Hollywood Reporter) about fathers and sons and the power of redemption. Resurrecting the Champ is more than just an inspiring tale, it 'has a genuine resonance and reason rare in movie' (Boston Herald)! Sportswriter Erik Kernan (Hartnett) wants nothing more than to discover a story great enough to make headlines. So when he meets Champ (Jackson), a former boxing champion living on the streets, he knows he has a shot to save them both. Recording his newfound friend's unbelievable tale of triumph and defeat, Kernan gets his story and his fame. But as Champ's tale falls under more scrutinizing eyes, Kernan will have to learn that what truly makes a story great is the quality of the man behind it.
