Based on the Pulitzer Prize winning author J.R. Moehringer’s memoir, Amazon Studios has unveiled the first trailer for George Clooney’s The Tender Bar adaptation.
The film tells the story of J.R. (Sheridan), a fatherless boy growing up in the glow of a bar where the bartender, his Uncle Charlie (Affleck), is the sharpest and most colorful of an assortment of quirky and demonstrative father figures. As the boy’s determined mother (Rabe) struggles to provide her son with opportunities denied to her — and leave the dilapidated home of her outrageous if begrudgingly supportive father (Christopher Lloyd) — J.R. begins to gamely, if not always gracefully, pursue his romantic and professional dreams — with one foot persistently placed in Uncle Charlie’s bar.
Directed by George Clooney, The Tender Bar stars Academy Award® Winner Ben Affleck, Tye Sheridan, Emmy Award Winner Christopher Lloyd, Lily Rabe, and introducing Daniel Ranieri.
Amazon Studios will release THE TENDER BAR in select UK locations on December 17th, 2021 Globally on Amazon Prime Video January 7th, 2022.
