The Iron Claw

The true story of the inseparable Von Erich brothers, who made history in the intensely competitive world of professional wrestling in the early 1980s. Through tragedy and triumph, under the shadow of their domineering father and coach, the brothers seek larger-than-life immortality on the biggest stage in sports. (R, 2h 10m)

“The film doesn’t have a conventional plot, and it’s somewhat naïve about pro wrestling, but it is an affecting look at a family for whom things never seem to work out. It’s one of the few movies released this season that frankly deals in emotions.” – Kyle Smith, Wall Street Journal

“It’s about the male ego, competition, and the heartbreaking story of the Von Erich family, all of it done with a graceful touch to honor their legacy. The Iron Claw is a gripping piece of American cinema.” – Leo Brady,

“As a wrenching American heartland saga, The Iron Claw is certainly compelling, and to anyone unfamiliar with the Von Erichs’ history, each jolt of fresh anguish delivered to the family will be startling.”  – David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
