A film for every parent
13 October 2020 | by chrishastings1066See all my reviews

I saw this at a festival having been told this is a film 'every woman should see' but that is to underestimate a perfectly executed and multi-layered short film. As a stay-at-home husband and father who has seen the profound weight of responsibility that falls on the mother's shoulders - even when she's not necessarily present - Blocks felt painfully true to life and captures wonderfully not only the truisms that underpin so many family dynamics, but does it in a brilliantly observed and refreshing way. It's glued together by a wonderful central performance by Claire Coffee who - certainly from the response to the screening I attended - perfectly captured and conveyed the experiences and emotions of so many mothers! I'll never look at a Lego brick the same way again.
