Fighting With My Family

19th February 2019

The film follows the journey of professional wrestler Saraya "Paige" Bevis, from growing up in a household of professional wrestlers to winning the WWE Divas Championship in 2014.

The film also features the conflict between Saraya and her brother, Zak as both compete in try-outs for WWE however only Saraya is signed. It stars Florence Pugh as Paige, along with Jack Lowden, Nick Frost, Lena Headey , Vince Vaughn  and is written and directed by Stephen Merchant. Dwayne Johnson executive produces and also appears in the film.   Energetic performances by the whole cast. Committed acting that left us cheering for more. 

I loved Jack lowden as Zodiac Zac . Vincent Anthony Vaughn as coach Hutch was really good at his character, very convincing.   But the movie isn't just for wrestling fans, Paige's story is about following your dreams and battling against the odds - inspiring film for teenagers. For a novice like me , with no understanding of WWE, Fighting with My Family gave moments which gave a feel-good blast that was great and entertaining.

 Rated: 4/5 Stars
