The Evolution Of Marisa Tomei
27. The Wrestler (2008)
High praise again greeted this stellar drama from director Darren Aronofsky. Tomei turns in a staggering performance as an aging stripper who strikes up an understanding and a friendship with a retired wrestler.
Mickey Rourke made his comeback as the wrestler in question. The film earned rave reviews, and Aronofsky considers his recent Black Swan a companion piece to the film.
Award Worthy? Another Oscar nomination, but no win. She was robbed.
