One of the lighter jewels to come out of this year’s Sundance Film Festival was Win Win. The film stars Paul Giamatti and centers on his relationship with a teenager who has “man-strength.” That description may sound strange but after watching the trailer, you’ll see what we mean. Check out the official trailer for Win Win below…
The cast for this film is gold. Besides Giamatti there’s Amy Ryan, Jeffrey Tambor, Burt Young, and Bobby Cannavale who can do know wrong in our eyes. Win Win looks like the perfect mix of comedy and heart. The film is scheduled to hit theaters on March 18th.
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.
