Dicky Eklund is a former boxing hero that squandered his talents and threw away his shot at greatness. Micky Ward, his half brother, is the struggling journeyman boxer who spent his life living in his big brother's shadow.
Drama - While the film is centered on a boxer, this isn't so much a
traditional sports film than a gritty drama about his family and
environment; there is still a fair amount of fighting though. Fans of
stars Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, and Amy Adams will enjoy this big
dramatic showcase. Violence and language make the film inappropriate
