Q&A to follow with Tom McCarthy and moderator, Richard LaGravenese

Tom McCarthy (THE VISITOR and THE STATION AGENT) once again explores the depths and nuances of human relationships in his new film about the allegiances and bonds between unlikely characters.  Disheartened attorney Mike Flaherty, who moonlights as a high school wrestling coach, stumbles across a star athlete through some questionable business dealings while trying to support his family.  Just as it looks like he will get a double payday, the boy's mother shows up fresh from rehab and flat broke, threatening to derail everything.  McCarthy's deft touch with balancing drama and comedy, broken hearts and poignant humanity is at play in WIN WIN.
