Thomas McCarthy co-wrote and directs Adam Sandler in The Cobbler, a fantasy comedy/drama that had its world premiere at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival and which is now debuting an international trailer. McCarthy’s films are usually well received by critics, however this one didn’t generate much of a positive response following its premiere screenings. And unlike his previous directorial offerings – The Station Agent, The Visitor, and even Win Win to a lesser degree – there’s not much awards buzz surrounding its 2015 undetermined theatrical release.
In addition to Sandler, the cast includes Dustin Hoffman, Steve Buscemi, Melonie Diaz, Method Man, and Ellen Barkin.
Adam Sandler plays a 4th generation shoe-maker who discovers a magical sewing machine in his father’s basement that allows him to transform into other people by wearing their shoes. The film takes Sandler’s character on a voyage of self-discovery and learning the importance of family via the magic of “walking a mile in another man’s shoes.” A journey that results not only in changing himself, but the world around him.
