THE WRESTLER is a cinematic smackdown that slams audiences head first into the harsh and harrowing world of professional wrestling. Director Darren Aronofsky and writer Robert D. Siegel transcend the sports genre, and fearlessly explore the dream-ravaged landscape of a performer whose time has come and gone. Mickey Rourke's towering performance as "Randy 'The Ram' Robinson" stands firmly in the pantheon of great American performances on film - and his tag team of Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood prove once again that they are among the finest actors of their generation.
