A broken-down pro-wrestling star seeks reparation in his life outside the ring in this stirring drama. Mickey Rourke delivers a touching, Oscar(R)-nominated performance as Randy "The Ram" Robinson, a wrestling legend whose age, declining health and years of hard living have left him broke and alone. Facing the possibility of life without wrestling, the gritty Ram pursues unlikely relationships with a weathered stripper (Marisa Tomei) and his estranged daughter (Evan Rachel Wood). "Rourke creates a galvanizing, humorous, deeply moving portrait that instantly takes its place among the great, iconic screen performances" (Variety). Directed by Darren Aronofsky; written by Robert Siegel.
