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.

This list started as an unfilled Word document saying “Best Movies” on January 1st , and it ended with over one hundred films that have been obsessively tweaked. There’s no ulterior motives and no efforts to impress behind the choices I’ve made. These are just the ones I liked a little bit more than the rest.

Win Win Blu-Ray To Wrestle Wallets In August, Seek It Out Win Win Blu-Ray To Wrestle Wallets In August, Seek It Out
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. The only other card I have up my sleeve is its DVD and Blu-Ray release date and special features list, courtesy of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Win Win streets on August 30.

Tom McCarthy's Win Win Goes To Fox Searchlight Tom McCarthy's Win Win Goes To Fox Searchlight
It sounds a little too treacly and a little too much like The Blind Side, but then again, the notion of a movie about a white college professor whose life is changed by a Muslim street musician was pretty awful too, but The Visitor was outstanding

Giamatti has a way of shining in pretty much anything he does, and McCarthy has a way of getting great performances out of actors in tiny movies, so there's really no reason not to root for this to happen
