The Wrestler

The Wrestler

Love. Pain. Glory.
  • How about a round of one-on-one?

Mickey Rourke gives a standout performance playing an ageing professional wrestler. He's getting on in years, but has no other means of making a living apart from performing in the square ring. Although the fights are scripted, the fighters still get battered. It's a tough life. He's also trying to patch things up with his estranged daughter, while trying to get romantically involved with a pretty stripper, who insists that she is unavailable.
