The Fighter:  David O. Russell and Amy Adams [VIDEO]

For “The Fighter" director (and Oscar nominee) David O. Russell, the film isn’t just a docudrama about the rise of boxer Micky “Irish” Ward (nominee Mark Wahlberg), who won the Light Welterweight Championship in 2000 with the help of his ex-champ half-brother, Dicky (supporting actor nominee Christian Bale). It’s about fighting within the ring and without, in life and with loved ones, and the closely-knit but explosive relationships within the Ward clan. The film has received seven Academy Award nominations, including one for best picture.
