Darren Aronofskys The Wrestler is an insightful behind-the-scenes meditation on the films provocative characters and the choices they make. Once a hugely successful WWF wrestler, Randy the Ram now ekes out a living performing for diehard wrestling fans from the 1980s in high school gyms and community centers around New Jersey. But when he suffers a heart attack, Randys doctor tells him he needs to lay off the steroids and stop wrestling altogether. Forced out of show business, Randy begins to evaluate the state of his life. But the pull of the spotlight is too strong and he attempts once again to find his way back into the ring. Featuring actors Mickey Rourke, Academy awardwinning Marisa Tomei, and Evan Rachel Wood, this book is an extension of Aronofskys filmic vision, and will contain film stills, the original shooting script, still photos, original art, and observations by its creators, cast, and crew.
