My boy, my beautiful boy
2 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is based on a book, and has been transformed from paper to screen extremely well. Ioan Gruffudd plays Harry, and portrays him with excellence. Although it isn't meant to be a comedy, it has it's moments. 'Green spagetti' and 'Star Wars' are two main features (you have to have seen it to understand them). One of the funny moments is when Harry is washing his son's hair in the bath, but Pat (the son) doesn't like it because his mother, who has left, and struggles. Harry responds by saying "Does Luke Skywalker cry when he has his hair washed?", and Pat says defiantly, "No!". This drama is ridden with quips, and is a wonderful piece of acting.
