Storyline

Leo Leone has been wrestling since he was seven years old. As the only son of wrestling coach (and ex-state champion) Edward Leone, Leo's dedication to the sport was tied up in his love for his father. Now Leo is seventeen. His life has been an endless cycle of training, sacrifice, and starving to make weight -- a process that is becoming ever more difficult during adolescence. He's tired of denying himself everything, and is feeling the lure of a world beyond the mat. Living paycheck to paycheck, working a dead-end job in the mines while coaching for no money, Leo's father Ed sees a wrestling scholarship as his son's only chance to escape the treadmill of life in a small Pennsylvania town. But though his motives are good, Ed is pushing his son too hard. Written by Anonymous

You People Just Don't Understand
18 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I Am a wrestle so nobody can understand how much we go through but us. Losing weight just sucks bad no joke no way to get through it, but what doesn't help for most of us is our parents. They put enormous pressure on us to win. Eventually we just crack like Leo. They nailed this movie perfect and if you liked it watch Vision Quest. Also you people need to get this straight, nobody works harder at a sport then we do, don't even think about comparing seriously lol football plays , baseball, not one of you has it harder then us. We run sweat, run sweat, and work out. Our day consist of running, sweating, practicing and watching people eat. I don't expect you guys to understand but seriously don't judge us you have no idea what hell we go through - - - - -A Wrestlers Opinion.
