Fighting with My Family

The first film on our list of based on true story movies takes you behind the scenes of the entertainment industry: Fighting with My Family. In theaters now, it tells the story of how a young British girl from a family of wrestlers battled her way to the top of the WWE. The movie’s writer and director Stephen Merchant told us showing the finished product to that family was more than a tad stress-inducing. Luckily the family was happy with the movie, and based on critic and audience reviews so far, movie fans are flipping for it too! This is one of those based on true story movies you won’t want to miss!
