In this comedic drama based on the bestselling memoir of the same name and directed by George Clooney (The Midnight Sky and Suburbicon), J.R., a fatherless boy, is growing up in the glow of a bar where his Uncle Charlie, the sharpest and most colorful of an assortment of J.R.’s father figures, is the bartender. J.R.’s determined mother struggles to provide her son with opportunities denied to her and leave the dilapidated home of her outrageous and begrudgingly supportive father. J.R. begins to gamely, if not always gracefully, pursue his romantic and professional dreams in law and writing – with one foot persistently placed in Uncle Charlie’s bar. The Tender Bar features an all-star cast including Ben Affleck (The Way Back and Argo), Tye Sheridan (Ready Player One and Mud), Lily Rabe (Vice) and Christopher Lloyd (Nobody).
