Directed by Academy Award Winner George Clooney, The Tender Bar is based on the Pulitzer Prize winning author J.R. Moehringer’s memoir. The production boasts impressive talents with Academy Award winner Ben Affleck and Tye Sheridan.
Written by Academy Award Winner William Monahan, The Tender Bar 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 colourful of an assortment of quirky and demonstrative father figures.
As the boy’s determined mother (Lily 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.
Amazon Studios will release The Tender Bar in select cinemas in December 2021 and globally on Amazon Prime Video in early January 2022.
