Discussing why she signed on to play WWE Superstar Paige in the film, Florence Pugh said, “I love her story of empowerment, as well as her feistiness and funkiness. I had to be a part of this film, which is about this young woman finding the strength to follow her dreams – and succeeding.”
Fighting with My Family opened in select theaters in Los Angeles and New York on February 14, 2019 and will expand into wide release on February 22nd. The MPAA’s rated the comedy PG-13 for crude and sexual material, language throughout, some violence and drug content.
“Fighting with My Family is a heartwarming comedy based on the incredible true story of WWE Superstar Paige™. Born into a tight-knit wrestling family, Paige and her brother Zak are ecstatic when they get the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to try out for WWE. But when only Paige earns a spot in the competitive training program, she must leave her family and face this new, cut-throat world alone. Paige’s journey pushes her to dig deep, fight for her family, and ultimately prove to the world that what makes her different is the very thing that can make her a star.”
