Amazon have released the official trailer for the upcoming film adaptation of J. R. Moehringer’s memoir The Tender Bar.
The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
The Tender Bar tells the story of J.R., a fatherless boy growing up in the glow of a bar where the bartender, his Uncle Charlie, is the sharpest and most colourful of an assortment of quirky and demonstrative father figures. As the boy’s determined mother struggles to provide her son with opportunities denied to her — and leave the dilapidated home of her outrageous if begrudgingly supportive father — 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 film is written by William Monohan, directed by George Clooney, and stars Ben Affleck, Tye Sheridan, Daniel Ranieri, Lily Rabe, Christopher Lloyd, Sondra James, Max Martini, Michael Braun, Matthew Delamater, Max Casella, Rhenzy Feliz, Ivan Leung and Briana Middleton.
The Tender Bar is scheduled for cinematic release in the US and UK on the 17th December 2021, then appear on Amazon Prime in both countries on the 7th January 2022.
