Our very own Paula Wiseman got a chance to have a quick chat with Stephen Merchant. Paula caught up with Stephen at the DIFF screening of his new movie, ‘Fighting With My Family’ on Weds 27th February 2019.
Based on a true story, Fighting With My Family follows reformed gangster Ricky, wife Julia, daughter Paige and son Zak as they make a living wrestling together in tiny venues. When Paige and Zak get the opportunity to try out for WWE, the family grabs a once-in-a-lifetime chance to turn their wildest dreams into a dazzling future. However, brother and sister quickly discover that to become superstars, both their talent and their relationship will be put to the test. Fighting With My Family is a heartwarming and smart comedy that proves everything is worth fighting for when it comes to family.
