The Fighter

This year’s obligatory sports drama is The Fighter.  The Fighter follows the true life rise and fall of two brothers from Lowell, Massachusetts.  The older is Dicky Eklund (Christian Bale) who is know as the pride of Lowell following his knockdown of Sugar Ray Leonard.  The younger and protagonist is Micky Ward (Mark Wahlberg).  Dicky, now a crack head, trains Micky while their mother, (Melissa Leo) manages the duo.  The family affair struggles with Dicky’s addiction and Micky’s career.  Amy Adams co-stars as Micky’s love interest and disrupts the family unit.
