The Fighter

David O. Russell (Three Kings, Flirting With Disaster) directs this true-life biopic about working-class Massachusetts boxer "Irish" Micky Ward. The scrappy fighter had a short but successful run in the '80s welterweight division thanks to training from his half-brother Dicky Eklund. The film concentrates most on the family dynamic, pitting the never-say-die underdog Micky (Mark Wahlberg, who's been trying to make this movie for ages) against the fallen golden boy Dicky (Christian Bale in another transformative role). 114 minutes R.
