All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1)

A playful, painful film, artful and honest.

Answers are nowhere to be found in this paradoxical documentary. The New Man demystifies parenthood by showing two open-hearted people going through and describing the process.

The New Man is a fascinating insight into modern fatherhood, male identity, cultural expectation and the torturous path of late parenthood.

December 8, 2016 | Full Review…

Although there is at times a feeling of contrivance and faux-naïf innocence, there is a lightness of touch -- poetry even -- in the way the film is put together.

November 29, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Told simply through snatches of conversations with friends and family, and subtle sound design, this is a profoundly moving and revealing study of a life-changing event.

November 20, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

This is an uplifting film about that unique yet universal, extraordinary yet everyday rite of passage in which non-parents become parents.
