Modest in means but rich in warmth, it's an eminently likeable film and all credit to Kerrigan for finding a new way of exploring the age-old story of dads and their boys.
Kerrigan never quite gets the tone right and the film suffers from what looks like a lack of finance in certain areas.
With a strongly nostalgic tone, Kerrigan gives this subtly understated thriller a provocative emotional kick. Despite a slightly contrived script, solid performances make the film both haunting and thoughtful.
Justin Kerrigan's first feature since 1999's Human Traffic is based on his own relationship with his father; no wonder it's so harrowing and deeply felt.
I'm not even sure it quite survives a calamitous opening half in which the script toils to prop up Charlie's increasingly ornate flights of fancy. But it is certainly ambitious and heartfelt, dappled with moments of ragged glory.
Fundamentally harmless, though it rather tramples on its own period authenticity -- why all the Steven Soderbergh-esque funk-scored heist sequences? You may be nonplussed.
Intrigues but doesn't satisfy despite thoughtful performances from Carlyle and Fuller.
It's a deeply personal tale defined by a sturdy turn from newcomer Fuller and Carlyle's compellingly unpredictable performance.
Kerrigan successfully captures a captivating father-son bond in an understated, but perfectly executed indie flick that never attempts to be more than the sum of its parts.
