Time Out

Modest in means but rich in warmth, it's an eminently likeable film and all credit to Kerrigan for finding a new way of exploring the age-old story of dads and their boys.

Justin Kerrigan's first feature since 1999's Human Traffic is based on his own relationship with his father; no wonder it's so harrowing and deeply felt.

Kerrigan never quite gets the tone right and the film suffers from what looks like a lack of finance in certain areas.

I'm not even sure it quite survives a calamitous opening half in which the script toils to prop up Charlie's increasingly ornate flights of fancy. But it is certainly ambitious and heartfelt, dappled with moments of ragged glory.

It's a deeply personal tale defined by a sturdy turn from newcomer Fuller and Carlyle's compellingly unpredictable performance.

Shadows on the Wall

With a strongly nostalgic tone, Kerrigan gives this subtly understated thriller a provocative emotional kick. Despite a slightly contrived script, solid performances make the film both haunting and thoughtful.
