Sports movies about women are exciting and emotional. They are thus because in order for there to be a movie to be made, there must be a great story. Sometimes the story is one of struggling against personal adversity, sometimes it’s a battle against a male dominated system and sometimes it’s just for the sheer love of the sport and a jolly good tale. Here’s some romping good sports movies about women.

Arguably one of the most critically acclaimed sports movies about women in the last decade, Million Dollar Baby tells the story of a rough and ready young woman named Maggie Fitzgerald who dreams of becoming a championship winning boxer. Starring Hilary Swank and Clint Eastwood, the film picked up a handful of Oscars and provides an expert mix of drama and tragedy. A truly amazing picture.
