Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"As a study in grief, it's too distracting to make an impact."
‑ Dave Calhoun, Time Out
"Ray Winstone is a fine actor but even he cannot inject much life into the maudlin drama Fathers Of Girls."
‑ , Daily Express
"Whether muttering threats and tips about tea-making under his breath or stalking Howman, Winstone looks decidedly uncomfortable."
‑ David Parkinson, Radio Times
"Limp and limping, even the short 76-minute runtime feels like a chore."
‑ Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film
"It seems like a very personal project for both Winstone and Howman, filled with interesting but unfinished and undeveloped dramatic ideas."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian [UK]
"Too meandering to stir the brain and too dour to engage the heart, the moving storyline too often falls flat in stodgy scenes."
‑ Philip Wilding, Empire Magazine
"The general dead air and creepy ending make it hard to see who, beyond members of the Winstone/Howman clans, might be interested."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"Howman and his co-director/writer Ethem Cetintas are so concerned with keeping the plot mellow that they have robbed their story of any drama."
‑ Alex Zane, Sun Online
"[A] dreary pot-boiler..."
‑ Neil Smith, Total Film
