Movie: Man of Tai Chi
Keanu Reeves directs, both in reality and story, the fall and redemption of the heir to a Tai Chi school. This martial art is noted as being very "soft" and meditative, and rumored as very powerful when grudgingly applied in earnest. A wealthy death match coordinator discovers and grooms him, unto facing his own consequences. Stylish and with a notable soundtrack, this comes together much better than most tales of the genre.
