"Win Win" plays into conventional sports picture tropes, but the assured direction, excellent performances, and surprise-filled screenplay make it worthy of viewers' time.

A very understated dramedy that focuses on family dynamic, using wrestling as a backdrop. Paul Giamatti and Amy Ryan give very believable and moving performances in the lead roles. I wasn't in love with the young wrestler's performance, but Giamatti owns every scene he's in.

Yet another good drama for 2011. Characters and performances shine through a plot heavy story that does away with sports movie conventions and is more genuine and sweet. Ending could've had more closure between the characters though.
