Featuring a Q&A with Writer, Director and star Jessica Hynes

Tina Bell (Jessica Hynes) lives in a quiet seaside town, but her life is anything but quiet – her mother is threatening to leave her father, her daughter is being bullied and she and her husband Mick (Shaun Parkes) are jugglingfull time jobs and three children. Determined to ditch the dysfunction and beat her inner demons, Tina puts on her fighting gloves, literally – stepping into the boxing ring to sweat out her anxieties and punch up her self-worth. But does she have what it takes to get her family off the ropes and emerge victorious?

Gritty and graceful, THE FIGHT captured the hearts of the critics at the 2018 London Film Festival.  Jessica Hynes’ directorial debut is driven by strong female performances and shot through with bittersweet, compassionate humour.
