"Win Win" movie
Apologies if this has been brought up before, but I didn't see anything about it.
There's a new movie coming out called "Win Win" about a high school wrestling coach (Paul Giamatti) and a star athlete (Alex Shaffer) he comes across. I was able to see a pre-screening of the movie and it was quite enjoyable.
It can't truly be called a wrestling movie since wrestling is more of the backdrop for the problems of the main characters, but it features some decent wrestling and uses more than a couple of cliches to portray the sport. Both the writer/directory and producer wrestled in New Jersey, and star Alex Schaffer wrestled in high school in New Jersey.
The movie is released by Fox Spotlight Pictures and opens in limited release March 18. A full release will likely depend on how well the movie does in its limited release. The film won at Sundance 2011 and has received positive early reviews.
