One of the best movies I saw at Sundance this year was Tom McCarthy’s Win Win. The film is warm, touching, and incredibly funny. Fox Searchlight has now released a trailer for the flick and I think it does a fine job of selling the picture without giving too much away.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer and click here to read my review of the film. Win Win stars Paul Giamatti, Amy Ryan, Melanie Lynskey, Jeffrey Tambor, Bobby Cannavale, and Alex Shaffer. It opens March 18th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Win Win:
Tom McCarthy, acclaimed writer/ 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 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. McCarthy’s deft touch with balancing drama and comedy, broken hearts and poignant humanity is at play in WIN WIN.
