Amazon Studios has shared the full-length trailer for its coming-of-age drama The Tender Bar, starring Ben Affleck and directed by George Clooney.

The Tender Bar, Clooney’s follow-up to his Netflix sci-fi film The Midnight Sky, is based on novelist J.R. Moehringer’s 2005 memoir of the same moniker. The plot follows J.R. (Daniel Ranieri) a young boy growing up in Long Island who searches for a father figure at his uncle Charlie’s (Affleck) bar. While being raised by a single mother (Lily Rabe), J.R. discovers a passion for reading and writing that ultimately shapes the course of his future.

The trailer transitions to reveal a teenage J.R. (Tye Sheridan), who attends Yale to pursue both his writing and romantic dreams. In the face of conflict, Charlie, who then appears slightly older and wiser, offers J.R. some words of wisdom: “In life, you gotta have ‘it.’ If you don’t have ‘it,’ you’ll never get it. And I say you got it.”

The movie, which was written by Academy Award winner William Monahan, also stars Christopher Lloyd and Briana Middleton.

The Tender Bar internationally premiered at the BFI London Film Festival on October 10. The movie will arrive in select theaters on December 17, before landing on Amazon Prime Video on January 7.

Ahead of its release, watch the trailer above.
