"Win Win" is a film from Todd McCarthy, the acclaimed writer/director of "The Visitor" and "The Station Agent." McCarthy once again explores the depths and nuances of human relationships, as well as 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 in "Win Win."

Fox Searchlight Pictures' "Win Win" movie is produced by Everest Entertainment, Groundswell Productions and Next Wednesday Productions. "Win Win" is written and directed by Tom McCarthy, based on a story by Tom McCarthy & Joe Tiboni. The film is produced by Mary Jane Skalski, Michael London, Lisa Maria Falcone and Tom McCarthy, and executive produced by Lori Keith Douglas and Tom Heller. Bringing the story to life is an ensemble cast headed by Academy Award nominee Paul Giamatti, Academy Award nominee Amy Ryan, Bobby Cannavale, Jeffrey Tambor, Melanie Lynskey, Burt Young and teen newcomer Alex Shaffer.

The creative team includes director of photography Oliver Bokelberg ("The Bounty Hunter"), production designer John Paino ("The Visitor"), editor Tom McArdle ("The Visitor"), and music supervisor Mary Ramos ("Inglourious Basterds"). The music is by Lyle Workman ("Forgetting Sarah Marshall") and the costume designer is Melissa Toth ("Adventureland").
