"Win Win" Movie Review

There Are No Losers as Two Down and Out Guys Wrestle Their Way to Happiness in WIN WIN 

Funny, dramatic, honest and touching... a movie that we can all relate to in one way or another.  Win Win is a great movie, emotionally touching.  Once again we are reminded to do things for the right reasons! 

About Win Win

Laugh, cry and win with WIN WIN now on Blu-ray and DVD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.  WIN WIN is not just another sports movie; the unconventionally uplifting film combines action on the mat with the hilarious highs and heartbreaking lows of a new kind of family. Indie film writer-director Tom McCarthy (The Visitor) guides a celebrated cast including Academy Award® nominees Paul Giamatti (Sideways, “John Adams”), Amy Ryan (Gone Baby Gone) and high school wrestling star and newcomer Alex Shaffer in this quirky coming-of-age tale.

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.

WIN WIN also highlights the critically-acclaimed performances of Bobby Cannavale (Sex and the City,“Third Watch”), Burt Young (Rocky), and Jeffrey Tambor (“Arrested Development,”The Hangover).
