Storyline

Tina lives in a quiet seaside town but her life is anything but quiet - her mother is threatening to leave her father, her daughter is being bullied and she and her husband Mick are juggling full time jobs and three children. Determined to ditch the dysfunction and beat her inner demons, Tina puts on her fighting gloves - literally, stepping into the boxing ring to sweat out her anxieties and punch up her self-worth. But does she have what it takes to get her family off the ropes and emerge victorious? Written by The Fight production

Splendid, beautifully played and nuanced film
21 April 2019 | by andrewecclesSee all my reviews

This film is a joy: sensitve, nuanced and thoughtful. Other reviews (not necessarily on IMDb) suggest it lacks a killer punch or clear plot line but the sum of its parts amounts to a deft slice of the human condition in all its frailties. Fine, subtle, performances and nicely unresolved. If that's not your thing, best avoided (and reviewed).
