See larger Paul Giamatti stars as Mike Flaherty, a small-town New Jersey attorney who agrees to take on the guardianship of an elderly client (Burt Young) who’s starting to suffer from dementia. Mike thinks he’s got a good little deal going: Instead of caring for the old man on a daily basis, he sticks him in a nursing home and pockets the $1,508 stipend every month. It’s a win-win, he figures. What Mike doesn’t count on is the arrival of Kyle (Alex Shaffer in his film debut), the client’s wayward grandson. Mike just happens to be a part-time high school wrestling coach, and Kyle just happens to be a part-time high school wrestler — and once he opens up, he turns out to be a nice guy to boot.
