THE COBBLER is an upcoming comedy-drama film directed by Thomas McCarthy (Win Win, The Visitor, Up, Station Agent) and co-written with Paul Sado. Premiered at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival and received mostly mixed to negative reviews, the film stars Adam Sandler, Dan Stevens, Dustin Hoffman, and Steve Buscemi.
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 provides the perfect vehicle for Sandler to exhibit his endearing and selfless boyish charm, taking him 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.
