Critic Reviews for The Kid
This is an inspiring story, but it's badly told. Best read the book instead.
In this case, truth isn't stranger than fiction, it's just strangely hackneyed.
Director Nick Moran obviously feels strongly about the material but fails to create a consistent tone.
A de-glamourised Natascha McElhone is so unconvincing as the harridan of a mother that her performance is hard to take seriously.
It's a heck of a lot better than director Nick Moran's last movie (Joe Meek biopic Telstar), but could have done with tighter storytelling and better casting.
