Fighting with my Family

Biography Comedy Drama


 

In Norwich, England, Zak and Saraya run local wrestling matches with their parents, holding onto hope that one day they'll reach the pinnacle of wrestling in the WWE.

"Fighting with My Family" shares the story of a unique individual, and does so with nuanced humour and mammoth heart. Without any prior knowledge, any audience member can appreciate the sport for its fun and theatrics, and also the unparalleled passion of the fans. 'Paige's' inevitable rise to fame is typically formulaic, complete with the nitty-gritty montage, but this film succeeds beyond convention with its innate focus on the place in the world for the freaks and outcasts (especially the funny ones). Family wins.
