Movie Info

Tina lives in a quiet seaside town but her life is anything but quiet -- her mother is threatening to leave her father, her daughter is being bullied and she and her husband Mick are juggling full time jobs and three children. Determined to ditch the dysfunction and beat her inner demons, Tina puts on her fighting gloves -- literally, stepping into the boxing ring to sweat out her anxieties and punch up her self-worth. But does she have what it takes to get her family off the ropes and emerge victorious?

  • It was brave and smart of Hynes to leave her comfort zone. Her desperately angry characters linger on, just as they should.

  • Hynes, as ever, oozes resilience and honesty. As well as showing off a mean right hook, she has crafted a moving tribute to shattered middle age.

  • It feels like a very personal film, well acted by the A-list cast that Hynes has assembled: a cathartic meditation on the need to heal, the need to confront those who do wrong and to confront yourself when you've done wrong.

  • The Fight is a worthy directorial debut that, much like the seaside town it represents, shows artistic promise.
