"There are no big, aha moments in THE TENDER BAR. Episodic and intimately scaled, the coming-of-age story takes George Clooney as far from high concept as he’s gone as a director. His eighth feature is also the warmest movie he’s made.... It’s alive with messy, loving clashes and bursts of joy"—Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter. "They say it takes a village to raise a child, but in Pulitzer-winning journalist J.R. Moehringer’s case, a Long Island pub will do. A broadly appealing, only slightly sentimental personal history adapted from Moehringer’s memoir, THE TENDER BAR acknowledges how, growing up without a father, the young J.R. found the next best thing, if not better, in his blue-collar uncle Charlie (a terrific Ben Affleck, who could well be entering a new chapter in his career.) It is Charlie who opens the door to what will eventually be a life as a writer."—Peter DeBruge, Variety. "It’s what they call, in the trade, a 'feel-good movie,' and boy do we need it now"—Pete Hammond, Deadline Hollywood
