Here is the plot description for “Warrior”:

Rising stars Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton command the screen as two estranged brothers facing the fight of a lifetime­ in Lionsgate’s “Warrior”: a moving and inspirational action/drama from acclaimed director Gavin O’Connor (“Miracle”).

Haunted by a tragic past, U.S. Marine Tommy Conlon (Tom Hardy) returns home for the first time in 14 years to enlist the help of his father (Nick Nolte) to train for Sparta: the biggest winner-takes-all event in mixed martial arts history. A former wrestling prodigy, Tommy blazes a path toward the championship while his brother, Brendan (Joel Edgerton) – a teacher who was previously a fighter – returns to the ring in a desperate bid to save his family from financial ruin.

But when Brendan’s unlikely, underdog rise sets him on a collision course with the unstoppable Tommy, the two brothers must finally confront each other and the forces that pulled them apart. They face off in the most soaring, soul-stirring and unforgettable climax that must be seen to be believed.

A rousing ode to redemption, reconciliation and the power of the human spirit, “Warrior” is also a moving testament to the enduring bonds of family. “Warrior” stars Joel Edgerton (“Animal Kingdom,” “Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith”), Tom Hardy (the upcoming “The Dark Knight Rises,” “Inception,” “Black Hawk Down”), Jennifer Morrison (“House,” “Star Trek”) and Nick Nolte (“Tropic Thunder,” “The Thin Red Line”).

The film is directed by Gavin O’Connor. The screenplay is by Gavin O’Connor, Anthony Tambakis and Cliff Dorman. The story is by Gavin O’Connor and Cliff Dorfman.

Family Vs. Fame and Fortune

Fame and fortune. If your family really exists, they will be there when you fall flat on your face and come squirming back! :)

Despite the temptation of

Despite the temptation of fame and fortune, family should come first. I’d like to think that is the route I would take as well. In some tragic cases, a person’s family can have a toxic effect on that person’s future, in which case I would advise time to chase their dreams.

Family for sure. What’s the point of fame or fortune without people you love?
