I am terrible at writing reviews, and rarely see the point in doing so, given that there are so many that are fake or of otherwise negative intent. But I felt compelled to review this film.
I grew up starving for a positive male role model, and so I related quite strongly to this story. I can understand those who don't have that connection finding the film slow or outright boring.
For my part, though, I very much enjoyed a story that spoke to the need for such a figure in a young boy's life.
My uncle actually moved in with us for a time, and I relished it--but my mother thought his dating lifestyle was a negative influence, so she kicked him out. It was agonizing to me. And yet I said nothing.
We are human beings that have needs. Being ignored and/or abused and/or ridiculed relentlessly are not among them.
Thank you for telling a worthwhile story from such an incredibly rare angle.
