English: "A Kid"
6 December 2018 | by westsideschlSee all my reviews

A different take on a now grown adult seeking the dad & thus the family he didn't know because of a one night stand decades ago. The man a French Canadian w/a Parisian female. A small twist. Logical, but no DNA searching or comparisons. A bit incomplete ending. This seeking adult has a marital problem of his own which is unresolved if not made more complicated by a not healthy attachment to another female. The scene of two adults w/children on their laps in the back seat of a car is a serious & potentially deadly error in the script - dumb. Lots of smoking by a lot of people. A cheap way to create a visual that also has it's consequences - also dumb. Outcome w/painting misplaced; should be w/female. Not a well resolved ending.
