Based on the bestselling memoir, Ben Affleck, Tye Sheridan, Lily Rabe, Christopher Lloyd and newcomer Daniel Ranieri star in #TheTenderBar, in select theaters on December 17 and @PrimeVideo on January 7.
.@AmazonStudios sent over some wonderfully useful FYC swag on behalf of #TheTenderBar. Cutie pie Daniel Ranieri wrote the note, which I find delightful that this talented kid is gifting us bar ware. 🍸❤️
For the people who don’t think Ben Affleck is a good actor:
The Way Back
The Company Men
Good Will Hunting
Forces of Nature
Shakespeare in Love
(Good Batman too)
God dammit, I loved #TheTenderBar. The whole cast has such chemistry that it feels like a genuine family unit. Affleck and Rabe are nothing short of fantastic. This movie really made me miss home, and candlepin bowling 😂
#TheTenderBar doesn’t always work, especially from some questionable directing choices, but when it does, it does because of Ben Affleck giving what is probably his best performance. After THE WAY BACK and this, we might be in the Affleckissance.
#TheTenderBar is a beautiful, little, slice of life gem that brings you viscerally into its world to feel every laugh, tear, failure and triumph.
Clever, resonant & touching. @BenAffleck is EXCEPTIONAL here and #GeorgeClooney ‘s direction is fantastic.
Absolutely see this one!
#TheTenderBar is nothing you haven’t seen before, with little to set itself apart from countless similar coming-of-age stories. Still, the adult actors pull their weight & turn in winning work, from the lively Lily Rabe to the justly acclaimed & considerably charming Ben Affleck.
#TheTenderBar is not anything special, not by a long shot, and nearly every directing choice specifically is about as generic as it gets. However, the cast is game for everything, and they fight like hell to make this rise above mediocre, and they kind of succeed. It's fine.
