He was the pride of Bayonne, New Jersey, a man who went 15 rounds in the ring with Muhammad Ali, and the real life inspiration for Rocky Balboa. But before all that, Chuck Wepner (Liev Schreiber) was a liquor salesman and father with a modest prizefighting career whose life changed overnight when, in 1975, he was chosen to take on The Greatest in a highly publicized title match. It’s the beginning of a wild ride through the exhilarating highs and humbling lows of sudden fame—but what happens when your 15 minutes in the spotlight are up? Driven by a committed performance from Liev Schreiber, Chuck—directed by Philippe Falardeau (Monsier Lazhar; It’s Not Me, I Swear)—is a refreshingly human tale of resilience and redemption. Contains mature content, including nudity, strong violence, and drug use. (2K DCP Presentation)
