He was the pride of Bayonne, New Jersey: a man who went 15 rounds in the ring with Muhammad Ali, and the real-life inspiration for Rocky Balboa. But before all that, Chuck Wepner (Liev Schreiber) was a liquor salesman and father with a modest prizefighting career--a man whose life changed overnight when, in 1975, he was chosen to take on The Greatest in a highly publicized title match. It was the beginning of a wild ride through the exhilarating highs and humbling lows of sudden fame--but what happens when your 15 minutes in the spotlight are up? Driven by Schreiber's committed performance, CHUCK is a refreshingly human tale of resilience and redemption. Elisabeth Moss and Naomi Watts costar.
