When Mike Flaherty (Giamatti) comes across a teenage runaway who also happens to be a champion wrestler, Mike’s luck turns around in spectacular fashion.

What the Momma Thinks…
I am a sucker for movies that have a tragic beginning that leads to a happy ending. Win Win was really just that. A story about a young boy with a troubled past that is taken in by a everyday struggling family. They end up helping each other grow and surpass each crisis in their own way. This is a movie for film lovers that look past the need for flashy extras and enjoy the basic routines of story telling.
