The Tender Bar Trailer Released
Amazon has released the official trailer for upcoming film The Tender Bar. Based on the best-selling memoir of the same name by J.R. Moehringer, and directed by George Clooney, the drama 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 colorful 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 Tender Bar is scheduled for a Dec. 17th theatrical premiere and a Jan. 7th premiere on Amazon Prime Video.
Check out the trailer below.
