Written by Rob Siegel, “The Wrestler” stars Mickey Rourke, Marisa Tomei
and Evan Rachel Wood
. Back in the late ’80s, Randy “The Ram” Robinson (Mickey Rourke) was a headlining professional wrestler. Now, twenty years later, he ekes out a living performing for handfuls of diehard wrestling fans in high school gyms and community centers around New Jersey.
“The Wrestler” has won the top award – Golden Lion – at the Venice Film Festival.
Rourke, who received a rare standing ovation at a press conference, is generating early Oscar chatter. He told in an interview that “The Wrestler” was “the best … movie I’ve ever made.”
