Following its premiere at London Film Festival recently, The Tender Bar is heading for Amazon Prime Video in January. Watch the trailer...
The Tender Bar tells the story of J.R. (played as an adult by Tye Sheridan, with the younger version played by newcomer Daniel Ranieri), a fatherless boy growing up in the glow of a bar where the bartender, his Uncle Charlie (Ben Affleck), is the sharpest and most colorful 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.
Based on the book by J. R. Moehringer, The Tender Bar is directed by George Clooney from a screenplay written by William Monahan, based on the Pulitzer Prize winning author J.R. Moehringer’s memoir of the same name. The film comes to Amazon Prime Video from 7th January.
