This is a scene from “Million Dollar Baby” as Maggie Fitzgerald, played by Hillary Swank, is training to establish herself as a boxer.  Typically in sports movies like these, you see a male playing the role of a boxer instead of a female.  Swank is establishing traits a male boxer would possess such as aggression, strength, determination and a will to win.  Even though it was acting, Hillary Swank played her role to perfection, cultivating in multiple academy award nominations.
