Here is the plot description for “Win Win”:

Tom McCarthy (the acclaimed writer and director of “The Visitor” and “The Station Agent”) once again explores the depths and nuances of human relationships in his new film about the allegiances and bonds between unlikely characters.

Disheartened attorney Mike Flaherty (Paul Giamatti), who volunteers 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. McCarthy’s deft touch with balancing drama and comedy, broken hearts and poignant humanity is at play.

The movie trailer for “Win Win” can be watched now below.

Knowing not to take others too personally. Knowing that you may not be able to change a circumstance, but you can change how you react to it. And learning how to make the most of not-so-favorable situations. Everything else is gravy.
