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.

Music video helmer Daniel Wolfe and his brother Matthew confirm that style and content need not be mutually exclusive with their impressive feature debut ...

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

An exhilaratingly tense and stylish thriller that is a sure-fire sign of promising things to come.

Despite the numerous faults, Catch Me Daddy is effortlessly gripping throughout, with its significant flaws only coming to light after an anti-climactic ending.

That you won't easily forget the experience may be Wolfe's big victory in a film that's easier to admire than enjoy.

Audience Reviews for Catch Me Daddy

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.
