The Wrestler

By/de : Darren Aronofsky
(USA/France 2008) 109 min
With/avec: Mickey Rourke, Marisa Tomei, Evan Rachel Wood

This is a drama about an aging professional wrestler, decades past his prime, who now barely gets by working small wrestling shows 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.
