The Featherweight


Set in the mid-1960s, The Featherweight presents a gripping chapter in the story of Italian-American boxer Willie Pep who, down and out in his mid-40s, decides to make a return to the ring, at which point a documentary camera crew enters his life. Painstakingly researched and constructed, the film is a visceral portrait of the discontents of twentieth-century American masculinity, fame and self-perception.
