Critic Reviews for A Boy Called Dad
Starts confidently, before panicking itself into potty melodrama.
A sympathetic study of confusion, heartache and despair.
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.
Sabotages any dramatic credibility with clunky scripting and increasingly preposterous plot twists.
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.
