Funny And Original
3 October 2018 | by mattsandiferSee all my reviews

Instead of the usual tale of a father and his estranged son reconnecting with one another on a road trip, An Actor Prepares shows an entirely believable father unwilling to relinquish his debauchery (and its repurcussions) and a son's journey to come to terms with it. This movie is funny, original, and compelling.
