    Fighting with My Family is a 2019 British-American biographical sports comedy-drama film based on the 2012 documentary The Wrestlers: Fighting with My Family by director Max Fisher, depicting the WWE career of professional wrestler Paige. The film stars Florence Pugh as Paige, along with Jack Lowden, Nick Frost, Lena Headey and Vince Vaughn, and is written and directed by Stephen Merchant. Dwayne Johnson executively produces and also appears in the film.

    I don't keep up w/ wrestling, but I thought this sounded interesting. Saw it a couple days ago & liked it a lot. Anyone else see it or planning to?

    Die rad.

    Def want to, but will wait for redbox. Getting great reviews too, just not making much money.
  3. I liked Paige, but all of the off camera stuff kinda ruined her for me. I'm sure they don't address any of that.

    Fantastic film. No need to get to any stuff that occurred later on in Paige's career as the film is its not relevant to the story the movie is telling. This may be a bio pic, but its more about the dream and allure of being in the wrestling industry than Paige herself. Nick Frost as Paige's dad was absolutely perfect!

    Really enjoyable. Florence Pugh and Vince Vaughn were fantastic. They fudged a few things for dramatic effect, but didn't take away from my enjoyment of this. Good on Stephen Merchant for doing this.

    Why would they? It has nothing to do with the story.

    This didn't get great until midway in, but I ultimately liked it a lot. Wish I saw it sooner

    This actually might end up in my 10 favorite films of the year, even though it’s not necessarily one of the 10 “best” or whatever. Revisited it not long ago & still liked it a lot. Surprisingly so for what it is. I really like oddballs & stories about family, though, so maybe not that surprising, lol.
