First look at Clooney's latest directorial outing.

As a director, George Clooney has taken on ambitious projects in recent years like The Monuments Men, Suburbicon and The Midnight Sky, none of which were well received. For his latest wielding of the megaphone he's perhaps understandably turned to a more intimate style of filmmaking.

Based on the best-selling memoir of the same name by J.R. Moehringer, The Tender Bar stars Tye Sheridan as a young man coming-of-age in the surrounds of the local bar run by his uncle (Ben Affleck).

Scripted by William Monahan, the film also stars Christopher Lloyd, Lily Rabe and Daniel Ranieri.

The Tender Bar is in UK cinemas from December 17th and on Amazon Prime Video from January 7th, 2022.

Check out the trailer and poster below.




The official synopsis reads:

The Tender Bar tells the story of J.R. (Tye Sheridan), a fatherless boy growing up in the glow of a bar where the bartender, his Uncle Charlie (Ben Affleck), is the sharpest and most colorful of an assortment of quirky and demonstrative father figures. As the boy’s determined mother (Lily Rabe) struggles to provide her son with opportunities denied to her — and leave the dilapidated home of her outrageous if begrudgingly supportive father (Christopher Lloyd) — 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.
