Reviews

Ann Hornaday Washington Post | July 28, 2011

The rare, humanist beauty of Win Win is that none of its characters is a caricature, none of its plot twists a blatant play for tears or laughs, none of its appeal based on some mythical lowest common denominator.

Amy Biancolli Houston Chronicle | April 07, 2011

Giamatti excels as the weak-kneed Mike, nicely working his gift for inner conflict and outer bumbling. As his wife, Amy Ryan is a ballast of unflinching moral certitude.

Roger Moore Orlando Sentinel | April 06, 2011

With "Win Win," McCarthy has found his emotional sweet spot, a sweet and complex story to set it in and the perfect title for it.

Mary F. Pols TIME Magazine | April 04, 2011

[McCarthy's] writing reflects a wariness of human nature but he's not cynical; indeed, the story wraps up with a tenderness that feels true but completely without mush.

Tom Long Detroit News | April 01, 2011

Win Win is a winner all the way.

Lisa Kennedy Denver Post | April 01, 2011

Tom McCarthy's third feature proves something incontestable: The writer-director has a way with American characters.

Bill Goodykoontz Arizona Republic | April 01, 2011

McCarthy's story and direction don't demand that the audience take sides one way or the other with Mike. He and Giamatti trust us to come to our own conclusions.
