The Wrestler (2008)

Marisa Tomei as "Cassidy/Pam"

Aging wrestler Randy "The Ram" Robinson (Mickey Rourke) is long past his prime but still ready and rarin' to go on the pro-wrestling circuit. After a particularly brutal beating, however, Randy hangs up his tights, pursues a serious relationship with a long-in-the-tooth stripper (Marisa Tomei), and tries to reconnect with his estranged daughter (Evan Rachel Wood). But he can't resist the lure of the ring and readies himself for a comeback.

Academy Award (2008) Nominated Best Supporting Actress
British Academy of Film & Television Arts (2008) Nominated Supporting Actress
Golden Globe (2008) Nominated Best Performance By an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture
