"The Wrestler"

The trailers and promotion for this film just did not seem attractive. Never having been a Mickey Rourke fan his revival stirred no interest. Nevertheless since Wrestler was at my neighborhood theater and is in the hunt for an Oscar, why not take a chance. Surprise, I liked it, a lot. How could I possibly get caught up in and identify with a washed up professional wrestler trying to go a few more rounds in the ring and in his life, etching out some grace in the process. I did. This is a fine little film.
