Mike Flaherty is a suburban father who wants more than anything to be a victorious wrestling coach, a winning husband and father and a better friend. He gets his chance to be all those things with one questionable choice that changes his life in ways he never expected, leading him not only on an incredible sports run with a young wrestling phenom, but also to heartbreak, hard truths and a surprising road to redemption.
Comedy - Although there is a major teen character, this is a quiet,
understated, slow drama aimed at older adults. Fans of star Paul
Giamatti will have plenty to savor here. Language and adult
subject matter make the film inappropriate for kids.
