Clooney said he had reassessed his priorities as he turned 60 in May.

George Clooney is back behind the camera in the coming-of-age story “The Tender Bar,” starring Ben Affleck and Tye Sheridan.

The eighth feature film directed by Clooney is based on the memoirs of American author JR Morlinger, who found a replacement for his absent father in his uncle Charlie’s New York pub.

“It was good. It was kind. It was kind and I don’t do much of that kind of film,” Clooney told Reuters on Sunday at the premiere of the drama London Film Festival.

“I wanted something that didn’t necessarily reflect everything I had ever experienced. We all wanted something that reminded us that we generally like each other. “

In the film, JR, played by Sheridan and rookie Daniel Ranieri, is taken under the wings of Berman’s uncle, played by Affleck, to find a haven in his facility. Inspired by the stories of the bar’s colorful patrons, JR grows from an anxious boy to an acclaimed writer.

According to Clooney, it was easy to cast his friend Affleck as a full-scale uncle Charlie.

“This character is really smart, he’s a little goofball, Ben is all of them.”

Clooney said he had reassessed his priorities as he turned 60 in May.

“60 changes the dynamic a bit. Amal and I always talk about it,” he said, referring to his wife, human rights lawyer Amal Clooney.

“Working is really important to us, so it doesn’t mean we won’t work, but don’t forget to spend time with each other and with our family.”

Released at a US movie theater on December 17, “The Tender Bar” will begin streaming globally on Amazon Prime from January 7, 2022.
