The Wrestler (5-Sep-2008)

Director: Darren Aronofsky

Writer: Robert D. Siegel

Keywords: Drama, Wrestling

A past-his-prime wrestler struggles to adjust to life after his career.

ABSTRACT
Randy "The Ram" Robinson, once a fearsome professional wrestler adored by fans, lives life in the present day sharply removed from his heady peak, working a part-time grocery store job and wrestling on the weekends to sustain his meager trailer-park existence. Washed up with seemingly nowhere to turn to after he suffers a steroid-induced heart attack following a match, Randy bounces around like a drifter for some time, ultimately seeking redemption against the advice of his doctor and loved ones in the form of a dire "comeback" bout against his old arch-nemesis, "The Ayatollah".
