Movie Info

CATCH ME DADDY, Daniel Wolfe's first feature, written and created with his brother Matthew, follows Laila, a teenager from a ruthless criminal family as she flees home with her boyfriend, Aaron. Laila's family, who disapprove of the relationship on the grounds of religious principles, decide to hire a couple of mercenary thugs to chase them down - a pursuit that takes them deep into the muck of the Yorkshire Moors. Described by the Wolfe brothers as a "modern-day Western," the film is a tough, atmospheric, all-together riveting experience, which also received very strong reviews upon its Cannes premiere before heading to the Karlovy Vary Film Festival, The London Film Festival, and International Film Festival Rotterdam.

  • The clever obfuscation of fact and context is, in the end, what makes the film worth catching.

  • The film does not quite digest everything it wants to encompass. But there an energy and boldness in the debut work from Daniel Wolfe.

  • Despite its questionable conclusion, Catch Me Daddy is a striking debut for two very talented British filmmakers.

Audience Reviews for Catch Me Daddy

  • Nov 07, 2015
    Here is a flawed & extremely uninteresting feature debut from former music video director Daniel Wolfe, co-writing with his brother Matthew!! Stylish as it may be, it's far more disappointing. There's hardly a worthwhile moment in this slow burner. Not much of a story to tell here and whatever there is only helps in adding to its flaws. The female protagonist playing Laila whose acting is more repulsive than her appearance, makes the movie more unbearable. The Chum Chum really got on my nerve. She'd rather leave her caring brother to die than go with him to her dad. Only to agree to return to her dad later when her boyfriend's mother is under threat. Had it been possible to give a negative rating here, I'd rate this BS -5/5 tops. Spoiler alert, if applicable.

    A revelatory lead performance, and a stunningly kinetic directorial debut.
