The Next Best Picture Podcast – “The Tender Bar”

By Matt Neglia 

For our second review this week, Josh Parham & Dan Bayer joined me to discuss the newest film from Academy Award-winner George Clooney. “The Tender Bar” is a sweet coming-of-age film now streaming on Amazon Prime Video, starring Ben Affleck, Tye Sheridan, Lily Rabe, Christopher Lloyd, and newcomer Daniel Ranieri. Based on a memoir by JR Moehringer, the film is filled with familiar, grounded, and nostalgic conventions of storytelling meant to inspire and warm our hearts. What did we think of the performances? The direction from Clooney? We discuss all of these points and whether or not Ben Affleck will receive an Oscar nomination for acting in our review down below. Enjoy!
