The Fighter tells the story of Micky Ward and his road to the World Boxing Union (WBU) Light Welterweight Title. It’s also the story of Micky’s brother, Dicky Eklund, and his fall from promise to obscurity. It’s about family, loyalty and redemption. Based on a true story, The Fighter is a movie about the underdog making it to the top. It’s a simple yet stunning movie with a lot of emotion and heart.
