Fifth about The Seventh

Fighting With My Family

Fighting With My Family: Stephen Merchant’s dramedy sort-of-biopic is a breezy and entertaining experience, the sort of be-yourself, overcome-your-insecurities story that can be a bit inspiring and let a smile lingering as it finishes. The film smartly doesn’t take itself too seriously, even if it shows the love and dedication of the characters for professional wrestling (and avoids making fun of it). Lena Headey and Nick Frost are very funny as the pair of parents; Jack Lowden, heartbreaking as the brother; Vince Vaughn is fine with his display of tough love; but, of course, Florence Pugh is the star of the show, injecting dimensionality to the character, and throwing herself around with gusto in the wrestling scenes.
