Film Preview: The Wrestler and Barfly, 22 February, Cameo, Edinburgh

20 Feb

As Mickey Rourke waits to hear if he’s won an Oscar this year for his performance in the brilliant The Wrestler, Edinburgh’s Cameo cinema gives him their own vote of confidence by showing two of his films back-to-back on Sunday afternoon: The Wrestler and Barfly are on from 1.30pm.

While the Wrestler sees Rourke as Randy “The Ram” Robinson, trying to relive former glories in modern day America, Barfly is a 1987 Rourke flick which sees him star as Henry Chinaski, a drunk writer with his own unique take on life.
