The Wrestler (2008) Drama, Sport | 109min | January 30, 2009 (United States) 7.9
Director: Darren AronofskyWriter: Robert SiegelStars: Mickey Rourke, Marisa Tomei, Evan Rachel WoodSummary: This is a drama about an aging professional wrestler, decades past his prime, who now barely gets by working small wrestling shows in VFW halls and as a part-time grocery store employee. As he faces health problems that may end his wrestling career for good he attempts to come to terms with his life outside the ring: by working full time at the grocery store, trying to reconcile with the daughter he abandoned in childhood and forming a closer bond with a stripper he has romantic feelings for. He struggles with his new life and an offer of a high-profile rematch with his 1980s arch-nemesis, The Ayatollah, which may be his ticket back to stardom. —Matlock-6
