Sunday Matinée at Market Chess Cinemas

The Wrestler (2008) is easily the finest work of Mickey Rourke's career, as he excels in a low budget but high quality production.

To be frank, I have never been much of a fan of WWE, but it would be a mistake to pass up this film. You are talking about great storytelling, acting, and universal themes all in play. The film makes you care about characters and plot twists you never thought you would.

Aging wrestler Randy "The Ram" Robinson (Mickey Rourke) is long past his prime but still ready and rarin' to go on the pro-wrestling circuit. After a particularly brutal beating, however, Randy hangs up his tights, pursues a serious relationship with a long-in-the-tooth stripper (Marisa Tomei), and tries to reconnect with his estranged daughter (Evan Rachel Wood). But he can't resist the lure of the ring and readies himself for a comeback.
