A refreshing take on an overused theme -- dysfunctional father-son connections -- starts gently and gets more compelling as it glides along like a woodworker's sharpened plane over smooth surfaces.

The film works because relationships are given real respect. They are explored with tender care and never reduced to sappy emotionalism.
