Mike Flaherty (Paul Giamatti) is a down-on-his-luck estate lawyer in New Jersey. He and his wife (Amy Ryan) unofficially adopt a teenage boy (newcomer Alex Shaffer) after the kid runs away from home looking for his long lost grandfather, one of Mike's clients. Turns out the kid is a wrestling phenom, which proves to be quite a boon to the high school wrestling team Mike coaches. Writer-director Thomas McCarthy (The Station Agent, The Visitor) sidesteps all the clichés inherent in the inspirational sports drama--crafting, instead, a warm, sharp, very funny look at human beings and the often dumb things they do to get through this thing called life. FULL REVIEW: Seriocomic snapshot of troubled families avoids cliché, embraces closure by Devin D. O’Leary (4/7/2011). 106 minutes R.
