WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In this 1956 drama, washed-up prizefighter Harlan "Mountain" McClintock faces the sudden end of his career. Having spent 14 years in the ring, Mountain faces the prospect of a life that does not include boxing and discovers that the skills that almost made him a champion don't count for much in the wider world. Mountain is torn between the possibility of new love and a promising future offered by social worker Grace, and loyalty to his self-serving manager Maish, who wants to exploit the fighter on the lucrative professional wrestling circuit. Widely regarded as one of the greatest sports dramas of all time, Requiem for a Heavyweight is a gut-wrenching account of the merciless prizefight game and the human wreckage it leaves in its wake.
