Check out the trailer for the Win Win, a new film from Tom McCarthy (The Vistor, The Station Agent) starring one of my favorite actors Paul Giamatti (I love Sideways) and Amy Ryan (who is hilarious Holly on The Office) plus Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development) and Melanie Jayne Lynskey (Have you seen 1994’s Heavenly Creatures?!) The film opens next month on March 18th, it looks right up my alley!
Tom McCarthy, acclaimed writer/ director of THE VISITOR and THE STATION AGENT, once again explores the depths and nuances of human relationships in his new film about the allegiances and bonds between unlikely characters. Disheartened attorney Mike Flaherty (Paul Giamatti), who moonlights as a high school wrestling coach, stumbles across a star athlete through some questionable business dealings while trying to support his family. Just as it looks like he will get a double payday, the boy’s mother shows up fresh from rehab and flat broke, threatening to derail everything. McCarthy’s deft touch with balancing drama and comedy, broken hearts and poignant humanity is at play in WIN WIN.
