Heartwarming father-son drama with excellent cast.
23 January 1999 | by (Ruidoso, NM) – See all my reviews

BILLY GALVIN is a small, independent production and a gem of a movie. Excellent performances by Lenny Von Dohlen, Toni Kalem and, especially, Karl Malden entertains and illuminates. One of the better father-son dramas due to a tightly written screenplay by writer/directer John Gray and an outstanding supporting cast. Authentic Boston locations add to the authenticity of the project.
