Reel Review

We were intrigued at the idea of a retelling of the Cervantes classic Don Quixote, and from acclaimed filmmaker Terry Gilliam. With a film within the film, the work could be a tale of the quixotic nature of storytelling and the medium of film. It could be a tale of madness and exile, of hope and illusion.

Based on a true story, Fighting with My Family is a British comedy meets WWE. Paige is born into a wrestling family. When she and her brother get a chance to try out for WWE (and meet Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) they are thrilled. Of course, there is a catch ... only Paige earns a spot.

We're interested in how the story is translated to screen as well as the real complicated women portrayed.
