Movie Info

Hector McAdam is embarking on his annual journey from Scotland to a warm refuge in London, where comrades, Christmas cheer and a turkey dinner await him. But, aware this might be his last epic journey, Hector opts for some paths not taken in years to reconnect with his past and reunite with those he left behind. Life without a home isn't easy but Hector is resilient, accepting of people, and life, as they come. He meets with friendship and kindness, disappointment and cruelty, discomfort and joy. His cross country odyssey brings chance encounters, companions old and new who need his support as much as he needs theirs, and stirs up memories, resentments, regrets and fresh hope for the future.

Critic Reviews for Hector

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (1)

It's refreshing that not every film need be so desperate about homelessness, but Hector is social realism that often feels unrelated to reality.

Mullan's heartfelt performance holds together the somewhat episodic narrative to create something certainly worthwhile.

Hector is a timely reminder of the precarious nature of life and how easily everything can be lost in a moment: it is easy to fall out with life.

Jake Gavin writes and directs and makes an impressive debut with an uplifting and refreshingly watchable picture.

The film is not interested in doing much beyond telling a fairly simple story, but it tells that story well enough.

In the end it ambles to a fairly predictable conclusion without really saying much about anything.
