Critic Reviews for A Boy Called Dad

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6)

Starts confidently, before panicking itself into potty melodrama.

May 6, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A sympathetic study of confusion, heartache and despair.

May 6, 2010 | Rating: 3/5

A well-intentioned look at masculinity and fatherhood.

April 30, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Shot adroitly, and combining Leone-esque close-ups with long tracking shots of the various urban and rural locations, the film prioritises the ambiguity of emotional ties over expository melodrama.

April 30, 2010 | Rating: 3/5

Powerful and affecting.

April 29, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The film has a nicely desolate air and some sweet bonding between the two Dads. But having avoided the threat of sentimentality, the film falls prey, in its latter stages, to silliness.
