Fighting With My Family
Opens Mar 22, 2019
Directed by Stephen Merchant (co-creator of The Office), Fighting With My Family is a heartwarming comedy based on the incredible true story of WWE Superstar Paige (Florence Pugh, Lady Macbeth). Born into a tight-knit wrestling family, Paige and her brother Zak (Jack Lowden) are ecstatic when they get the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to try out for WWE. But when only Paige earns a spot in the competitive training program, she must leave her family and face this new, cut-throat world alone. Paige's journey pushes her to dig deep, fight for her family, and ultimately prove to the world that what makes her different is the very thing that can make her a star.
Co-starring Nick Frost, Lena Heady and Dwayne Johnson.
"Within the context of a sport that thrives on artifice, writer-director Stephen Merchant spins a story whose emotions feel entirely genuine." (Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times)
"Like its amiable, irresistible ménage, Fighting With My Family softens its rougher edges with humor. It's often broadly funny but never mean or patronizing; it takes the Knights, their eccentricities and quixotic aspirations seriously, but not enough to squelch the fun." (Manohla Dargis, The New York Times)
