THE FIGHTER, 2010, Paramount Pictures, 115 min. Dir. David O. Russell. Boxer “Irish” Mickey Ward (Mark Wahlberg) is on the verge of complete career collapse, with a losing streak getting him no closer to the lightweight title, his "Mom-ager" (Melissa Leo) killing him with love and his crack-addict brother (Christian Bale) for a trainer. When Mickey falls for the feisty, hard-nosed Charlene (Amy Adams), who shrewdly sees through his family, he begins to realize that achieving the dream of a lifetime may require breaking from the people who have shaped his life. Discussion following with director David O. Russell, Amy Adams and other special guests (TBC). [35mm]
