Superb performance from Colin Farrell and the rest of the cast. My Dad would never have spent time with a woman alone away from my mother so I couldn't relate entirely, but I it is a touching movie I've learned to watch with a couple tissues at hand. Blake; a writer of some critical success still feels like a little boy wanting the approval of his dad instead of the snide remarks about how much he could be earning if he'd followed in the family footsteps and become a doctor. And there are, of course, others who I am most looking forward to. It is good to know that the adult Blake found his own path and appears to have succeeded on his own terms, not an easy feat when growing up in the shadow of such a dominant character, who obviously had a profound effect on those around him. Too slow moving, Reviewed in the United Kingdom on December 2, 2018. Rating: M, Contains sex scenes and offensive language, Find Trailers, News, Reviews and Features. So we have snippets of boy and young man angry at Daddy for his dalliances and inattention. Waste of my time. Anyone who has had a less than perfect relationship with their dad should be able to relate. A thought-provoking, heart-wrenching film. This one is in the latter category. It wasn't.

I haven't read the book and I knew nothing about Blake Morrison prior to watching the film, so can't comment on the film's success as an adaption. I love that this was a true story based on someone's life experience, The actors each played a vital role in my enjoyment of this real life drama that captured my heart and emotions.
