The Fight

UK, 2018, 91mins, Cert.12A

Film description

Tina lives in a quiet seaside town. Her life, however, is anything but quiet - her mother is threatening to leave her father, her daughter is being bullied, 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? 

The directorial debut of Jessica Hynes (Spaced) is a wonderfully subtle and humane piece of filmmaking about a woman pushing at the edges of her world, trying to break free of old patterns and find a new path forward for herself and her loved ones.


On Friday 29th March, we will be joined at the cinema by Jessica Hynes for a live Q&A.
