Win Win’s Finally Coming To EGF

We’re finally getting “Win Win” starring Paul Giamatti and Amy Ryan!

It’ll begin its run Friday in East Grand Forks’ RiverCinema 15, with a midnight showing tomorrow night.  It was written and directed by Thomas McCarthy (Dr. Bob from the “Meet the Parents” movies). From what I can tell, he’s a better writer/director than actor. He conceived of “The Station Agent” and “The Visitor.” (Click here to read my review of “The Visitor,” it’s good!)


Here’s the IMDB synopsis:

Disheartened attorney Mike Flaherty (Giamatti), who moonlights as a high school wrestling coach, stumbles across a star athlete through some questionable business dealings while trying to support his family. Just as it looks like he will get a double payday, the boy’s mother shows up fresh from rehab and flat broke, threatening to derail everything.

WIN WIN also stars Jeffrey Tambor (of “Arrested Development”), Melanie Lynskey, Bobby Cannavale and Burt Young. I’m in.
