Everybody Wins

Win-Win-007Tonight at Harbourfront’s Free Flicks, I’m delighted to be showcasing a movie that deserves a second chance at an audience: Tom McCarthy’s 2011 character piece Win Win, a lovely little picture featuring a terrific central performance by Paul Giamatti, excellent support from Amy Ryan and Bobby Cannavale and some profound sociopolitical commentary tucked away in the margins.

If you liked McCarthy’s earlier features, The Station Agent and The Visitor, maybe come by and check it out? It’s the sort of film that plays really well with a crowd. Here’s my NOW interview with McCarthy about the picture, if you’re curious, and my review.

9 pm, WestJet Stage. It’s good. You’ll like it.
