Starring Miles Teller (Whiplash), executive produced by some guy called Martin Scorsese and based on the life of boxer Vinny Pazienza, Bleed for This is one for the fans of a comeback movie.
The real Pazienza was gifted in the ring and had a great track record, being only the second boxer in history to win both the lightweight and junior middleweight world championships, despite being considered the underdog in the latter fight. Things were looking good until a car accident nearly cost him his life, with doctors saying he'd likely never walk again - and he'd certainly never fight. Given he was suffering a broken neck and forced to wear a medical 'halo' device for three months, everyone assumed his career was over.
This being a comeback movie, obviously, they were wrong. Operating entirely against medical advice Vinny continued to train and, thirteen months after the accident all but wrote him off, he was back in the ring.
Bleed for This tells this story.
Teller is supported by Katey Sagal, Aaron Eckhart and Ciaran Hinds.
