The Wrestler is definitely a film not to miss. It’s the story of a real life, everyday hero.
The film is about a wrestler named, Randy “The Ram” Robinson (Mickey Rourke) and back in the late ’80s, he was a headlining professional wrestler. Now, twenty years later, he ekes out a living performing for handfuls of diehard wrestling fans in high school gyms and community centers around New Jersey. His daughter has abondoned him. He has no money. The only thing he has, is his wrestling.
