THE WRESTLER (2008)

A fim by Darren Aronofsky.
Cast: Mickey Rourke, Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Woods.
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 his health decline he works full time at the grocery store at a deli as he find a bit of romance with a stripper and trying to reconciled with his daughter. Everything comes crumbling down and he finds out that there is a match that a promotor offers him that might be the road back to stardom. a great performance by Mickey Roorke the stripper also knows that her career is coming to an end, but unlike The Ram she seems to have plans after she retires, and her finances are in good order. It’s gritty, raw, sometimes depressing, sometimes funny. No happy ending there but a good solid story about people from different walk of life. Great performances by the actors. and well directed by the director.
