This talented but troubled star who first came to fame in '80s hits like 9 1/2 Weeks and Angel Heart, spectacularly fell from grace in an orgy of self-destruction. As an actor, he gained a trouble-maker reputation, often fighting with producers, showing up late to sets and not learning lines, raising hell and turning down star-making lead roles. Rourke's acting career eventually became overshadowed by his personal life and career decisions.In 1991, Rourke decided to go back to his first love: boxing. During his boxing career, he suffered a number of injuries that resulted in a dramatic physical change. What was Rourke's problem? Mickey Rourke: Wrestling with Demons chronicles the star's extraordinary adventure through life, from his nightmare childhood, broken marriages, arrests, and brain damage to a suicidal visit to a New York Church, the death of his brother in his arms, and to his Academy award nomination for The Wrestler. Written with passion, insight and expertise by respected show business reporter Sandro Monetti, this is a very human and compelling story.
