Published on

Adaptation of the memoir by J.R. Moehringer that recounted the writer’s adolescent years growing up on Long Island in search of a father figure among the patrons at his uncle’s bar.

Movie Reviews

“A movie that prioritizes feeling over structure. If it struggles to find a rhythm, especially in the early going, there’s no question that it sends you off on a gentle high” Sheri Linden: The Hollywood Reporter 

“Despite the earnestness of this all-American coming of age story, it is hard to escape the sense that “The Tender Bar” lies somewhere between a Nicholas Sparks adaptation and a middling Saturday Night Live sketch.” Rafaela Sales Ross: The Playlist 

“A pleasantly anecdotal amble down memory lane (…) But the fact is: nothing much happens.” Nicholas Barber: IndieWire 

Where to Watch The Tender Bar

On Amazon Prime Video.
