Daryl’s review published on Letterboxd:
George Clooney doesn't have the greatest track record of directing in my opinion. However, The Tender Bar surprised me, a coming-of-age film that is nicely directed, edited, the story is very engaging, and dare I say, quite tender. Moves along at a nice pace with Ben Affleck giving a warm, understated performance, and Tye Sheridan also does a good job. For me, this is Clooney's strongest offering.
