Win Win Synopsis

Tom McCarthy, acclaimed writer/ director of The Visitor and The Station Agent, explores the allegiances and bonds between unlikely characters with a lighter touch in his new film. Struggling attorney Mike Flaherty (Paul Giamatti), who volunteers as a high school wrestling coach, secretly takes on the guardianship of an elderly client in an attempt to help keep his practice and his family afloat. When the client’s teenage grandson runs away from home and shows up on his grandfather’s doorstep, Mike’s life is turned upside down. A win-win arrangement turns into something much more complicated than he ever bargained for. McCarthy’s deft touch balancing drama and comedy, broken hearts and poignant humanity is at play in Win Win.

I’m a sucker for Eminem references and Melanie Lynskey, which both appear in Win Win so I’ve done my best to promote the film.
