Paul Giamatti’s no stranger to off-beat comedy. Sideways is probably still his best work but he’s also had success with Harvey Pekar biopic American Splendor and more recently Barney’s Version. It’s no surprise then to find him in the lead in the forthcoming Win Win.
“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.”
