Elderly care

Paul Giamatti is Mike Flaherty, a down on his luck lawyer who also helps out coaching the high school wrestling team who are lousy. Mike finds out he can get $1500 a month for being a guardian to Leo (Burt Young) a wealthy elderly client who has dementia and who is searching for his daughter.

Mike puts Leo in an old people's home despite he wants to stay in his own house as Mike knows this would be easier and he gets easy money just when he needs it most. However things get complicated when Leo's teenage grandson Kyle (Alex Shaffer) shows up for a visit. Leo's daughter is in rehab. Mike puts up Kyle and finds out that he is a great wrestler which gives the high school team a boost. Then Leo's daughter shows up wanting custody of Leo and she seems more interested in her dad's money.

Win Win benefits from strong performances and a quirky plot which rather glosses over the problems with its story. Everybody is using Leo for their own means. Mike takes on the guardianship for his monthly fees but at least he puts him in a nice home. His daughter just wants money and cares little about Leo which Mike eventually discovers.

Enjoyable but flawed

So struggling middle aged lawyer with young family pulls a fast one to pocket $1500 each month being his court appointed guardian however, this leaves uncomfortable realities of: who pays old geezers care home fees? Another lawyer uncovers his ploy thus surely ruining his reputation among the legal community? He's ultimately left without the additional monthly income but with an additional 16yo to his family - if he couldn't manage financially before how can he afford this extra individual to feed and clothe?

Shaky start leads to triumphant finish

For the first 15 or 20 minutes, this film searches for its footing; several unfunny scenes depict Giamatti as a loser in life, belaboring the point, with seemingly irrelevant slices of life making the viewer wonder where the high school wrestling team fits in. Fortunately the plot takes hold, shortly before the indelible Shaffer appears on screen. And each "bit" beforehand does prove itself integral to the drama as a whole in the end. To avoid spoilers, one tangential question must be posed: why is a 16-year-old homeless ex- wrestler flush with cash? The film never explains why, although Shaffer's tattoos and cigarette- smoking allude to his being a rebel, and probably a competent prostitute prior to his arrival on Goamatti's doorstep, as far as backstory; he certainly has the body and demeanor to profit as a hustler. But this in inconsequential. Overall, the small variegated threads of this script do congeal into a fascinating movie about truth and compassion. Each character slyly evolves from an unlikable caricature to an immensely human character with believable attributes and a solidly placed heart. Yet the film somehow avoids being cliché or predictable. Absolutely a must-see, even if you feel indifferent about teen boy wrestling; the only drawback is emphasis on storyline and characterization rather than emphasis on the game (there are only about 10 minutes of actual mat-footage, and however exciting these minutes may be, the craving for more game-time may disrupt the avid sportsman's enjoyment of this film's other assets). With a handful of Oscar- nominated actors and numerous awards, "Win Win" is likely to win you over.
