As a study in grief, it's too distracting to make an impact.

Limp and limping, even the short 76-minute runtime feels like a chore.

Eye for Film

The general dead air and creepy ending make it hard to see who, beyond members of the Winstone/Howman clans, might be interested.

Daily Telegraph (UK)

Ray Winstone is a fine actor but even he cannot inject much life into the maudlin drama Fathers Of Girls.

Daily Express (UK)

It seems like a very personal project for both Winstone and Howman, filled with interesting but unfinished and undeveloped dramatic ideas.

Full Review… | November 18, 2010

Howman and his co-director/writer Ethem Cetintas are so concerned with keeping the plot mellow that they have robbed their story of any drama.
