The AWA would like to express their condolences to the family of wrestling legend Doug Blubaugh who passed away Monday the 16th from a motorcycle accident in Tonkawa, Oklahoma.
Disheartened New Jersey attorney Mike Flaherty (Paul Giamatti) struggles to keep his wife Jackie (Amy Ryan), their two young girls, and himself happy while moonlighting as a wrestling coach for New Providence High School. The team has developed a losing streak, and together with co-coach Vigman (Jeffrey Tambor), Flaherty is trying to fulfill the school’s motto as “The Home of Champions”. Through some questionable business dealings with older client Leo Poplar (Burt Young) Flaherty stumbles across a star athlete in the form of troubled teenager Kyle Timmons (Alex Shaffer), much to the delight of coach Vigman, as well as buddy and former high school wrestling partner Terry Delfino (Bobby Cannavale). The stage is set for Flaherty to get a double payday and a long-awaited winning wrestling team. Then Kyle’s mom Cindy (Melanie Lynskey) shows up—fresh out of rehab and flat broke, threatening to derail everything.Comments Off on WIN WIN Now Playing Nationwide!
