    'Win Win' Director Tom McCarthy Writing Supernatural Comedy-Drama 'Home Movies' For DreamWorks

    With this year's "Win Win," writer-director Tom McCarthy not only proved that "The Station Agent" and "The Visitor" were more than flukes, but he also made one of the best films of the admittedly lackluster year (thus far).
