Fathers and Daughters

Critics Consensus

Fathers and Daughters' name-brand cast can't cover for a screenplay that makes a half-hearted effort at delving into family dynamics but falls back on melodrama.

Audience Reviews for Fathers And Daughters

  • Apr 06, 2016
    This is a high quality Hollywood production, designed for the thinking viewer. A Pulitzer Prize-winning author struggles with grief, illness, and devoted single fatherhood; and then there is his only child's life. There are pleasant New York scenes and lovely interiors. It is set among the world's elite; still the film avoids pretension. There are some writing gems: "I have more money than God" ... "the United States of Money"... . In the sex scenes, some of which are unpleasant, the film avoids pornography. Carrying the story, Crowe fills the screen with his powerful combination of warmth, tenderness and strength, and a wide, musical acting vocabulary. The young child is depicted without cloying sentimentality. Seyfried is exquisite and tragic as the adult daughter trapped in a destructive cycle. A first-class supporting cast is memorable: for just one example, watch Diane Kruger when the sheen has fallen away from her character. Jane Fonda's depth of talent and screen presence upstage Crowe - perhaps he suitably acceded to this; you get to see these two wonderful actors together in a few classic vignettes. The screenplay leaves you with an integrated work, which has spoken to you about things that matter; be prepared for tears. Despite the engaging child characters, the many happy scenes which keep lifting the mood, and the overall absence in the film of explicit sex or violence, this is not one for kids or young teens, because it is emotionally complex; it is strongly wrought, grown-up stuff, yet beautiful for it.

    I found Russell Crowe to be superb in this. You cannot help but feel a little disturbed by the condition that ails his character and how it affects the life of his teenage daughter in later years. Some of it is nothing but filler and melodramatic at times but deep down there's a powerful message, if you look hard enough.
