Fighting for the Family centers on young Saraya (Florence Pugh), whose parents (Nick Frost and Game of Thrones star Lena Headey) struggle to make ends meet at minor wrestling events, while her brother, Jack ( Jack Lowden) dreams. Had an illustrious professional career in WWE. Everything changes when Saraya, who goes by the name Paige in the ring, gets her chance and meets Dwayne Johnson (playing herself).
Fighting for the Family is produced by Dwayne Johnson
Dwayne Johnson found out about Paige and her wrestling-loving family through a documentary — and it immediately became clear to him: This had to be a movie! He then developed Fighting for the Family with comedian Stephen Merchant (The Office).
The work of Florence Pugh (Midsomer, Little Women), who is already excellent in every role, is exciting, and the actress proves her prowess in the action genre here. It’s just a taste of what to expect in 2021, when she first emerged as a new Marvel star in Black Widow.
Despite the appeal of Dwayne Johnson, Fighting for the Family did not do well at the box office and attracted very few audiences to theaters. So we know a lot of people haven’t seen the movie — but the story is worth knowing, which is available to rent on Apple TV+.
