George Clooney directs THE TENDER BAR, starring Ben Affleck, Tye Sheridan and Lily Rabe, coming next year to Amazon Prime Video. See the new Trailer for the Film which premiered at the London Film Festival.
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 colorful of an assortment of quirky and demonstrative father figures. As the boy’s determined mother (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. The Tender Bar is based on the best-selling memoir of the same name by J.R. Moehringer.
THE TENDER BAR is in theatres December 22, 2021 and on Amazon Prime Video on January 7, 2022.
