Critic Reviews for A Boy Called Dad

All Critics (10)

Starts confidently, before panicking itself into potty melodrama.

May 6, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A sympathetic study of confusion, heartache and despair.

May 6, 2010 | Rating: 3/5

Julie Rutterford's well-observed script has a lively wit, the rainswept seaside sets are atmospheric and the cast are beyond reproach but once they part company from credibility the film's spell is broken.

May 3, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Sabotages any dramatic credibility with clunky scripting and increasingly preposterous plot twists.

May 3, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A well-intentioned look at masculinity and fatherhood.

April 30, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Shot adroitly, and combining Leone-esque close-ups with long tracking shots of the various urban and rural locations, the film prioritises the ambiguity of emotional ties over expository melodrama.
