The Fighter - Trailer
Director David O RussellYear 2011Genre(s) Dramas
All Micky Ward has known is boxing, his half-brother Dicky was once a notable name in the sport but due to drug addiction his career was brought to a halt, now he spends his time training Micky. As Micky's confidence grows, so does his ego, to the point that he openly brags to people in the neighbourhood about his almost certain victory before he's even entered the ring.
When Micky is approached by a professional trainer he must decide if he should cut the ties with his brother who's taught him everything he knows or if he should stick with him even though his criminal ways are beginning to drag Micky down. It's up to Micky's partner Charlene to persuade him to purse his dreams.
