A pair of siblings are offered the chance to represent their wrestling-mad family on the biggest stage of all: WWE. But how will they cope when the pressure kicks in? Based on the 2012 Channel 4 documentary, Fighting with My Family stars Florence Pugh, Dwayne Johnson, and Vince Vaughn.
Born into a wrestling-mad family, Paige (Florence Pugh) and Zak (Jack Lowden) haven’t had a usual upbringing. They tour small venues performing with their mum Julia (Lena Headey), and dad Ricky (Nick Frost) – but they’re desperate to take things to the next level.
Their lives change when the pair get a call from Hutch Morgan (Vince Vaughn), an exec from WWE, who offers them the opportunity to audition and show the world what they’re made of.
The training is tough, the expectation is immense, and the level required is far beyond anything the siblings have experienced in wrestling before. But this is their dream – this is WWE.
Wrestling with the best is all the pair have ever fantasised about. And so when the decision is made that only Paige should progress to the next stage, Zak is left devastated and sibling tension ensues.
The family must rally together to support Paige as she lives their dream and, with the help of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, begins to learn to accept herself as she makes her mark on the world of wrestling.
Based on 2012 Channel 4 documentary of the same name, director Stephen Merchant brings us the true story of a family with ambition to reach the very top. Starring Florence Pugh (The Commuter), Dwayne Johnson (Jumanji), and Vince Vaughn (Hacksaw Ridge).
