We’ve been praising this movie since its debut at Sundance Film Festival and now e have the UK (International ) Trailer for Tom McCarthy’s WIN WIN. The movie stars Paul Giamatti, Amy Ryan, Jeffrey Tambor, Melanie Lynskey, Bobby Cannavale and Alex Shaffer.
The indie comedy drama tells the story of Mike(Giamatti) who takes a kid called Kyle from a troubled home who is a star at wrestling and he is a coach helping him be sucessful. Things are looking great for all until Kyle’s mum (Melanie Lynskey) comes back on the scene threatening to destablize everything. This is my first time reading about the movie and so far all Ive heard is great things about it, some regarding the movie as The Blindside butter and funnier. The first impressions from the trailer it promotes the movie very well without giving much away.
The movie is currently out now in USA and today it was annouced May 20 will be the british release date!
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.
