Exclusive Clip: Tom McCarthy And Joe Tiboni Discuss Win Win
It’s like I always say: if there’s one thing we need more of, it’s movies about high school wrestling.* Thankfully, even if you could care less about kids roughhousing in unitards, there’s a bit more going on in the indie comedy Win Win, which hit Blu-ray and DVD today. The mere presence of Paul Giamatti, for instance, insured that my curiosity was piqued, rather than dismissing it as way outside of my interest zone. Hopefully the Giamatti factor will work better than it did in Lady in the Water.
In celebration of Win Win’s arrival on home video, and in front of quite a few new eyeballs, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has sent along an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip from Win Win. In the clip, writer/director Tom McCarthy and Joe Tiboni, who shares a “Story By” credit, discuss the origins and appeal of the film. Here’s the official synopsis of the film, and you can check out the clip below:
Academy Award Nominee Paul Giamatti stars as a lovable yet long-suffering lawyer and high-school wrestling coach who takes us on a brilliantly heartfelt journey through the game of life...where you can't lose ’em all. When Mike Flaherty (Giamatti) comes across a teenage runaway who also happens to be a champion wrestler, Mike’s luck turns around in spectacular fashion. But his win-win situation soon becomes more complicated than he ever imagined when the boy’s family affairs come into play. Co-starring Oscar Nominee Amy Ryan and directed by Oscar Nominee Tom McCarthy, this touching and funny comedy will leave you cheering.
