ABOUT

Fighting with my Family is a heartwarming comedy based on the incredible true story of WWE Superstar Paige™. Born into a tight-knit wrestling family, Paige (Florence Pugh) 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.  With Dwayne Johnson and Lena HeadeyFrom the official website

REVIEWS

“It’s Pugh who lands the killer blows as a character who comes out of her corner fighting but still struggles to find her feet in a foreign land. Thrown into a Barbie doll bear pit of bikini-clad warriors, “Paige” sees her prejudices about models and dancers overturned while remaining true to her own goth-girl ethos. Through a deft dramatic sleight of hand, the movie manages to celebrate her black-clad British individuality without casting sneering shade on her beach-blond US counterparts. It’s a delicate balancing act that Merchant handles with aplomb.”  The Guardian

This feel-good charmer following the true journey of superstar wrestler Paige (an electrifying Florence Pugh) from her humble beginnings in Norwich to becoming the youngest ever Divas Champion is an unqualified smackdown success.”  Radio Times

Sibling rivalry, fish-out-of-water comedy, an underdog story and the American Dream all collide in the true story that became an irresistible TV documentary – now an equally enjoyable feature film.”  Sight and Sound
