英文导读

The Wrestler is a 2008 sports drama film directed by Darren Aronofsky, written by Robert D. Siegel and starring Mickey Rourke, Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood. Production began in January 2008 and Fox Searchlight Pictures acquired rights to distribute the film in the U.S.

His sense of identity fading into nothingness after the spotlights dim and he experiences a close brush with mortality, a retired wrestler begins to evaluate his life while considering the comeback that could very well kill him in director Darren Aronofsky's poignant portrait of an introspective former superstar in the twilight of his career. Back in his heyday, Randy "The Ram" Robinson (Mickey Rourke), a 1980s-era pro wrestler was an icon in the ring. His image immortalized in action figures and video games, he would headline arenas across the globe. Twenty years later, those glory days have passed. He has become a burnt-out shell of his former self. Randy is forced to earn his keep by brawling before handfuls of fans in high school gyms and community centers around New Jersey. After he has a heart attack during a small-time match, a doctor tells him he could die if he fights again. In an effort to build a new life, Robinson takes a job at a deli and making an effort to reconnect with his estranged teenage daughter, Stephanie (Evan Rachel Wood). Yet, despite Randy's continued attempts at convincing local stripper Cassidy (Marisa Tomei) to settle down with him in his humble trailer, the ring still calls to him. But the prospect of a rematch with his old nemesis, the Ayatollah (Ernest Miller), proves too tempting to resist, even if it means risking his life.

The film was released in a limited capacity on December 17, 2008 and was released nationwide on January 23, 2009. It was released on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on April 21, 2009 in the United States. It was released in the United Kingdom on June 1, 2009. Aronofsky considers The Wrestler to be a companion piece to his 2010 film, Black Swan, as both films feature a character with a demanding art.

The Wrestler has received universal critical acclaim. Rotten Tomatoes reported that 98% of critics gave the film positive write-ups based upon a sample of 215, and gave it a golden tomato for best drama of 2008. Alonso Duralde, of MSNBC, said, "Rourke's work transcends mere stunt-casting; his performance is a howl of pain that seems to come from a very real place." Todd McCarthy, of Variety, said, "Rourke creates a galvanizing, humorous, deeply moving portrait that instantly takes its place among the great, iconic screen performances." Ben Mankiewicz, from At the Movies, said, "To put it simply, this is the best film I've seen this year."

The film received universal critical acclaim and won the Golden Lion Award in the 2008 Venice Film Festival in August, where it premiered. For his role, Mickey Rourke went on to receive a BAFTA award, a Golden Globe award, an Independent Spirit Award and an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor. Tomei also received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her performance.

剧情简介

绰号“大锤”的兰迪·罗宾森(米基·洛克 饰)是20世纪80年代美国独立摔跤圈中红极一时的摔跤大王,其绝招“大锤粉碎压”虏获了众多狂热的摔跤爱好者的心。

但随着行业的飞速发展和身体健康状况的下降,属于“大锤”的时代早已远去。20年之后,他只能依靠在高中体育馆或者地方运动馆里为摔跤爱好者进行摔跤表演为生。他固执地追逐着最后一丝荣光,私人生活却越来越糟。

长年的奔波,让他和女儿斯蒂芬妮(埃文·蕾切尔·伍德 饰)的关系疏远,感情生活也没有办法维系。常年的摔跤生活,剧烈的撞击和不断摄取处方药令他的心脏接近崩溃边缘。最终,在一次比赛的时候,他突发心肌梗死,尽管被抢救过来。但是,医生却警告他不能再参加摔跤比赛,否则他将丢掉自己的生命。

终于,迫于身体的无奈,兰迪决定退出摔跤圈,找一份稳定的工作,并找回家庭的温暖。他和一位脱衣舞女开始交往。表面平静的兰迪,内心十分渴望回到赛场。在经理人策划的一场20周年的经典比赛上,为了毕生钟爱的摔跤、为了狂热执着的摔跤迷、为了心中长久以来所坚持的梦想,兰迪终于再次披挂上阵,重返擂台……

重点学习

In an effort to build a new life

Build a new life是“建立新生活”的意思,in an effort to是英语中的一个固定搭配,是“企图(努力想);试图要”的意思,所以文中这句话的意思是“试图重新开始新生活。”

Despite Randy's continued attempts at convincing local stripper Cassidy (Marisa Tomei) to settle down with him in his humble trailer

Settle down是英语中的一个常用搭配,当我们说某人settles down, they start living a quiet life in one place, especially when they get married or buy a house.也就是“安顿下来(尤指因结了婚或买了房)”的意思,比如:One day I'll want to settle down and have a family.(总有一天我会安顿下来,成个家。)
