Win Win 
The latest film by indie darling Tom McCarthy (The Visitor, Up) is, to borrow a word from the title (and Charlie Sheen), “winning”. Win Win is at the same time wholly original and refreshingly familiar. This sweetly comic independent dramedy features fantastic acting from Paul Giamatti, Amy Ryan, Bobby Cannavale (hilarious) and Melanie Lynskey. It could’ve gone the sappy Blind Side route (a film with similar themes) but thankfully it didn’t.
Wow 4 stars. It was alright I think. I know I saw it back in the beginning of 2011, but I can barely remember it.
It took me by surprise and exceeded my expectations. It was very moving and funny. I liked it a lot.
