Bruised (Netflix streaming):

A disgraced MMA fighter finds redemption in the cage and the courage to face her demons when the son she had given up as an infant unexpectedly reenters her life.

Starring and directed by Halle Berry, a redemption story, similar to “The Wrestler” (which, if you have not seen, do so, even if not a pro wrestling fan). Very well done, you get involved with most of the characters, good or bad, the movie definitely makes you feel emotion one way or the other. It doesn’t pull punches (no pun intended, and the ending is solid.

Not much on IMDB, but from what I hear, the training Berry did was rather intense, and it shows in the movie. Highly recommend. I got caught up in it more than I thought I would.
