Father's Day is June 15...Here's a couple of good films to watch with or without your dad...
refreshing to watch both The Boys Are Back and Fat Kid Rules the World.
The Boys Are Back stars Clive Owens playing Joe Warr, a
father who deserted his first son with his second marriage and subsequent move to Australia.
Several years later, his second wife dies from cancer leaving Joe to figure out how to juggle dealing with grief, his job, and romance while raising his six-year-old son.
He decides on a revolutionary approach—a no rule, no chore household that allows chaos to reign. And then his teenage, dutiful, troubled first son arrives from England on his doorstep.
How will Joe confront the issues from his past and find a way to
bring his fragmented family together?
Troy, the older son, retreats into a world of video games and gluttony—becoming obese and increasingly withdrawn. Then charismatic drug-addicted, punk-rocker, high-school dropout, Marcus enters their lives and draws Troy into his orbit.
How does this family avoid disaster and learn to embrace life
