New interview alert. We had the opportunity to cover the Los Angeles Premiere of THE TENDER BAR at the TCL Chinese Theater on Sunday December 12th. We spoke with the cast about their upcoming film.
Watch down below:
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.
Directed by Oscar winner George Clooney, written by Oscar winner William Monahan based on the Pulitzer Prize winning author J.R. Moehringer’s memoir “The Tender Bar” produced by Oscar winner Grant Heslov, George Clooney and Ted Hope. The film stars Oscar winner Ben Affleck, Tye Sheridan, Christopher Lloyd, and Lily Rabe.
The film opens in Los Angeles and New York theaters on December 17th, in theaters nationwide on December 22nd and globally on Prime Video January 7th, 2022.
