Director and writer Stephen Merchant, co-creator of The Office and former wrestler turned Hollywood superstar Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson make the perfect tag team, bringing us this smash hit comedy-drama.
It tells the story of Saraya (Florence Pugh) and her sometimes (read: often) dysfunctional family of wrestlers who run an independent wrestling promotion in East Anglia.
When Saraya and her brother Zak (Jack Lowden) get a once-in-a-lifetime chance to try out for World Wrestling Entertainment in America, the pair suddenly enter the big time. But Saraya, newly renamed ‘Paige’, soon finds out that success is not all it’s cracked up to be.
Fighting With My Family is a hilarious and heartfelt account of one girl’s dream to make it to the top and her discovery that what keeps their family together can also threaten to tear them apart.
Merchant has made the film with a true affection for the subject material and employs a strong supporting cast including Nick Frost, Lena Headey, Vince Vaughn and of course, Dwayne Johnson playing who else but himself.
Can you think of a better man for the role? The Rock says… “IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT YOU THINK!!”
