Plot & Details
The subject of legendary documentarian Frederick Wiseman's hypnotic new film is an Austin, TX institution: Lord's Gym, which was founded 16 years ago by professional boxer Richard Lord. People of all ages, races, ethnicities and social classes come to Lord's: doctors, lawyers, judges, businessmen and kids all learn to spar alongside fellow amateurs and trained professionals. Wiseman depicts the gym as a uniquely American melting pot, a place where people meet to talk and train, and shows us that all the world's a ring.
