Bar Doce Lar (The Tender Bar) is based on the memoir by JR Moehringer. The film, which is directed by George Clooney, is divided into two phases of the author’s life.

First, the child JR goes to live at the grandparents’ house after the mother runs out of money. With Uncle Charlie giving him life lessons, the boy decides to become a writer.

As a young man, JR tries to fulfill his mother’s dream by entering Yale University. To achieve his goals, the future writer needs to overcome two dramas: his father’s abandonment and a complicated love affair.

In addition to Ben Affleck, the cast has Back to the Future’s Christopher Lloyd as the patriarch of this family. Tye Sheridan is the adult JR, while Lily Rabe is the writer’s mother.

The highlight of the cast is little Daniel Ranieri, who plays JR as a child. It’s his first work as an actor.
