“The Wrestler” Receiving Praise at the Toronto Film Festival

Nick Paglino


“The Wrestler,” a new film starring Mickey Rourke, is being listed in an article as one of the Top 20 films to watch at the Toronto Film Festival. “A retired wrestler with a stripper girlfriend and a heart condition is tempted into a rematch with his old foe,” reads the article. “A Rocky for grapplers? Perhaps. More likely: a Mickey Rourke comeback courtesy of director Darren Aronofsky (The Fountain).” The film is scheduled to be released on October 12, 2008 as part of the New York Film Festival.
