I saw this on a television movie channel tonight. I think that it is an exceptional representation of how impotent anger can metamorphose into mental illness. This is a movie with real insight into the human condition and the perversity of anger.
McDonald didn't receive the acclaim that he should have for directing an evolving Maxwell McCabe-Lokos, often unsuccessfully through emotions he must bare following a crime committed by his wife that lands her in jail. An ordinary man tires to deal with extraordinary circumstances.
The Husband pains the uncomfortable picture of a husband and father of a baby whose wife is spending time in jail for having sex with a teenage boy. Now that she is about to get out of jail, poor henry finds himself deeply conflicted. Making matters worse is the fact that he meets him casually one day and grows an unhealthy stalking obsession towards him. McDonald's film is uneasy yet its premise is very original. In fact, the awkwardness of the storyline isn't a problem. It is rather disappointing, on the other hand, that the film really offers very little to follow up on the strangeness of the initial premise. In the end, The Husband is simply a dull film that has nothing much to offer apart from a credible performance by Maxwell McCabe-Lokos, who also wrote the script, in the leading role.
