When Did You Last See Your Father?

Genre: Drama; Starring: Jim Broadbent, Colin Firth, Juliet Stevenson; Director: Anand Tucker; Author: David Nicholls; Release Date Limited: 06/06/2008; Runtime (in minutes): 92; MPAA Rating: PG-13

In When Did You Last See Your Father?, a British Big Fish,? director Anand Tucker (Hilary and Jackie) taps into boys’ predisposition to, as he says in the? commentary, ”hate our ? fathers.” Placid poet Blake (Firth) struggles to forgive his terminally ill dad (Jim Broadbent), a doctor who never recognized his son’s talent. Fine acting throughout — particularly by teenager Matthew Beard, who possesses the looks and serenity of a young George Harrison. But there’s never any doubt where this story is going. B
