Three sentence movie reviews: Win Win

 In All (-ish), Three Sentence Movie Reviews

This was one of those rare movies where all the characters were slightly flawed in a way that made them very human and very interesting to watch. It was also a movie filled will actors I love: Paul Giamatti, Amy Ryan, Jeffrey Tambor, and the always delightful “squee, it’s her! squee!” Melanie Lynskey. Alex Shaffer, who played the flat-affect teenager, was also awesome, making this a perfect movie, with great wrestling scenes, a rarity in the movie world.*

*This movie is highly recommended. And “church-going grandma” safe. Although, there might be swearing, so not super church-y grandma. In fact, upon reflection, there is F-word swearing, but it’s actually funny in the context of the movie.

    I also loved this movie. I remember laughing out loud at many moments (I think a few tears were shed, too). Agreed on your take of Alex Shaffer and of being excited to see the darling Melanie Lynsky.
