Win Win - Movie Synopsis & Plot

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 moonlights as a high school wrestling coach, becomes legal guardian of an elderly client in an attempt to help keep his practice afloat. When the client's teenage grandson runs away from home and shows up on his grandfather's doorstep, Mike's family life and his wrestling team are turned upside down. Mike's win-win proposition 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."

MOVIE REVIEW

From the director of The Visitor and The Station Agent comes yet another well-made personal drama, this one starring Paul Giamatti as a financially strapped lawyer and high school wrestling coach who finds inspiration literally on his doorstep. Win Win is one of the best movies of the year so far.
