Boyd at his Best
2 June 2002 | by (New York USA) – See all my reviews

Richard Harris leads a wonderful cast in this powerful, moving, beautiful film, 'My Kingdom'. Liverpool's grit and squalor, in its underworld of gangsters and corruption, is depicted with vibrant colour and power by Boyd. Harris plays a quasi -modern Lear, drawing us all in to his kingdom of gangster Liverpool and his three daughters. 'My Kingdom' is wonderfully realistic , helped by the superb acting of the fine cast, and the intuitive, dynamic direction of Don Boyd. There is also a feeling that you're entering another unknown world, as with Orpheus and his underworld. It's a brilliantly captivating 2 hours well worth spent at the movies.

Don't miss the US previews of this must-see movie, at the Newport Film Festival, Rhode Island, June 6th and 8th.
