The Petoskey Film Theater will be showing the Academy Award winning film "The Fighter" on Wednesday and Friday, March 16 and 18, 7:30 pm at the Petoskey District Library, Carnegie Building. Donations are appreciated. "The Fighter" was nominated for seven Academy Awards and won awards for both Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress.
Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale and Amy Adams star in this remarkable film. Based on a true story, two brothers, against all odds, come together to train for a historic title bout that has the power to reunite their fractured family and give their hard-luck town what it's been waiting for: pride. Micky Ward (Wahlberg) is a struggling boxer long overshadowed by his older brother and trainer, Dicky (Bale), a local legend battling his own demons. Their explosive relationship threatens to take them both down - but the bond of blood may be their only chance for redemption.
Dicky, once known as "the Pride of Lowell," traded his promising pugilistic career for a crack pipe (Sugar Ray Leonard cameos as his best-known opponent). As David Russell's film begins, the smothering Alice (Melissa Leo) manages Micky's career, while the unpredictable Dicky attempts to train him. Despite his talent in the ring, though, Micky can't catch a break until he meets Charlene (Amy Adams), a spitfire of a bartender who encourages him to stand up for himself. When Dicky ends up in prison, and Micky takes on a more experienced manager, his fortunes start to improve, but it isn't in his nature to abandon people who raised him, so he attempts to unite the various factions in his life before his shot at the world championship slips away.
