The Wrestler

As if Revolutionary Road wasn't enough emotion for one day, we immediately saw The Wrestler starring Mickey Rourke and Marisa Tomei, afterwards.

Mickey Rourke was amazing as Randy "The Ram" Robinson. To see his physical transformation was incredible and his portrayal of this heartbreaking character is 'pure pathos' (as many critics have concurred). And as for Marisa Tomei...well, let's just say her talents were displayed in others ways in this film. ;)

I really enjoyed this movie and left with such a soft spot for Randy Robinson. I just wanted to protect him, his heart and those long locks.
