Tom McCarthy, acclaimed writer/ director of THE VISITOR and THE STATION AGENT, explores the allegiances and bonds between unlikely characters with a lighter touch in his new film.  Struggling attorney Mike Flaherty (Paul Giamatti), who volunteers as a high school wrestling coach, secretly takes on the guardianship of an elderly client in an attempt to help keep his practice and his family afloat. When the client's teenage grandson runs away from home and shows up on his grandfather's doorstep, Mike's life is turned upside down.  A win-win arrangement turns into something much more complicated than he ever bargained for.  McCarthy's deft touch balancing drama and comedy, broken hearts and poignant humanity is at play in WIN WIN.

 Screenwriting workshop at the Hotel Providence  

April 16 & 17
Screenwriting differs from any other form of creative writing. In and of itself, a screenplay is not a finished product, but rather a highly structured idea for a completed film. Like an architect, a screenwriter holds the vision for a movie. Though the format and structure can be rigid, there is much freedom to be found in a screenplay. Screenwriting: The Art & Craft of Writing for Film will teach you to read and write screenplays with an emphasis on narrative work.
* This is not a RIFC workshop
