We gave it a B
Years of pent-up bitterness and estrangement come to a boil when a young professional (Lena Headey), at the request of her dying mother (Charlotte Rampling), must bring her drunkard father (Stellan Skarsgard) back to her Scottish hometown. At times it’s awkward and forced, but Norwegian writer-director Hans Petter Moland ultimately compensates with poignancy — mostly thanks to the excellent Skarsgard, whose portrait of a trembling alcoholic’s shameful desperation is a disquieting testament to the demon in the bottle.
