Movie Info

Deep in the darkest heart of a desperate city, a Depression-era love triangle brews between an underdog boxer (Matt le Nevez), a powerful crime lord (Hugo Weaving), and a sexy bombshell with her own agenda (Rose Byrne). Forced to choose between love and money, a beautiful girl soon learns that navigating the web of deceptions and betrayals she's woven for herself may have far deadlier consequences than she could have anticipated. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi

Audience Reviews for The Tender Hook


A period boxing drama that is quite atmospheric. Byrne was quite good in her portrayal of the complicated woman.
