Charming and Interesting Historical Romantic Comedy Drama, 29 August 2009
Author: intelearts from the big screen

The Golden Boys is a film that is easy to miss. The cast is everyone you know but has no A-list stars. The plot of three captains now retired looking for a woman who will be marry any one of them and so become a permanent housekeeper is nothing special. Yet at the heart of this lies something rather wonderful: it is a tale about people who care more deeply for each other and the place they live in than just for themselves.

The settings, costuming, and filming are all delightful. Set in 1905 there has been a real effort to recreate the interiors and exteriors in such a way that you smell the lavender water and the sea water.

The actor who shines in this is David Carradine - here, rather than trying to be the cool actor, he is rather the mature one, the dependable one, and as this was to become of his last films, it's kind of an odd role for him, yet one that seems more right than many of his others. Hemingway is as ever gorgeous, and here, her character is sense and sensibility at its best.

All in all, this is a wistful, good valued small film, and nicely sentimental without saccharine. If you wish you could have lived in simpler times then this is a film for you.
