Movie Info

Returning home to a broken marriage and an uncertain future, combat veteran Anthony Hayward (Papazian) believes there is no hope for himself. Yet when a troubled ten year-old neighbor, Wade (Tristan Lake Leabu), calls out for help, Anthony cannot turn away. To the dismay of the boy's social worker (Laura San Giacomo), Anthony sets out on a fool's quest to help this heartbroken and hard-to-reach child find his long-lost father. In the midst of this new mission - the first that seems to matter since his return - Anthony begins to come to grips with both the costs of war and the universal power of human connection. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Least Among Saints

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6)

It all ends on a grace note that feels false but caps an otherwise solid if predictable drama.

October 19, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

This quietly affecting indie film, about a Middle East war vet and the 10-year-old boy he takes under his wing, gently pulls the heartstrings while making dramatic missteps along the way.

October 18, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The results are too predictable.

October 12, 2012 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Though both actors deliver performances more credible than the plot that frames them, their authenticity only highlights the script's affection for improbable coincidences and an ending even Garry Marshall might consider too pat.

October 11, 2012 | Rating: 2/5

As a portrait of a self-pitying drunk's wet dream of inexplicable atonement, it's fairly effective, but as a story meant to take place on some rational version of planet Earth, it's utterly hopeless.

October 10, 2012 | Rating: 0/4 | Full Review…

A film in which any authority figure who can't magically sober up and play surrogate daddy for a spell is treated as either a meddler or a well-meaning, do-nothing skeptic.
