ANGELIKA’S NOTE

"THE FIGHTER, its heart full to bursting, is an emotional powerhouse that comes close to spilling over," raves Rolling Stone. Academy Award nominated Director David O. Russell (AMERICAN HUSTLE, SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK) adapts the story of Micky Ward, a fledgling boxer who tries to escape the shadow of his more famous but troubled older boxing brother and get his own shot at greatness. Rated 90% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and led by captivating performances from Oscar winner Christian Bale (VICE, AMERICAN PSYCHO) and Oscar nominees Mark Wahlberg (THE DEPARTED, BOOGIE NIGHTS) and Amy Adams (ARRIVAL, DOUBT), this Academy Award nominated film is wholly entertaining, gritty and inspirational.

For Micky Ward (Mark Wahlberg), boxing is a family affair. His tough-as-nails mother is his manager. His half-brother, Dicky (Christian Bale), once a promising boxer himself, is his very unreliable trainer. Despite Micky’s hard work, he is losing and, when the latest fight nearly kills him, he follows his girlfriend’s advice and splits from the family. Then Micky becomes a contender for the world title and he – and his family – earns a shot at redemption.
