Fighter, The

[cert 15, 115 mins]

A look at the early years of boxer "Irish" Micky Ward and his brother Dicky who helped train him before going pro in the mid 1980s. Like a real life Rocky, Micky fights on his own terms, pulls his family out of despair with his meteoric rise in the ring and helps recently paroled Dicky find redemption through training his younger brother.
