Mark Wahlberg stars in Paramount Pictures inspirational docudrama exploring the remarkable rise of Massachusetts-born lightweight title winner Irish Micky Ward. A determined pugilist whose career in the ring was shepherded by his loyal half-brother, Dicky (Christian Bale) — a hard-living boxer-turned-trainer whose own career in the ring was nearly sent down for the count due to drugs and crime — perennial underdog Irish Micky rebounded from a disheartening series of defeats to win both the WBU Intercontinental Lightweight title and the WBU Light Welterweight title thanks to a fierce combination of determination and hard work. David O. Russell directs from a script by 8 Miles Scott Silver and Paul Attanasio (The Bourne Ultimatum).
