Comedy


The multitalented hyphenate Tom McCarthy (The Station Agent, The Visitor) returns to his personal roots with this winsome, often comic tale set that's his most accessible yet subtly subversive film to date, one that manages to both celebrate the virtues of middle-class America while laying bare some unpleasant human frailties. Mike (Paul Giamatti) is a beleaguered small-town attorney and part-time high school wrestling coach who takes charge of a troubled young grappler. McCarthy's script is smart sans the smart-aleckiness of many Sundance-era indie comedies. He treats both his characters and the audience with exceptional care and respect. The film is heartfelt but not sappy, sober but not cynical.
