Review of "The Boys Are back," now open.


The Boys are Back
Director: Scott Hicks
With: Clive Owen, Nicholas McAnulty, Emma Booth, Laura Fraser, George MacKay

With antecedents in Kramer vs. Kramer and Ghost, this movie contrives to tug heartstrings and jerk tears.  Joe (Owen) is a sports writer in Australia whose wife has died leaving him with a 6-year-old (McAnulty).  Overwhelmed with his own grief and unsure how to cope with his son’s grief and rage, Joe takes the path of permissiveness, to the point of anarchy.  The boys behave like mom is away for a weekend, and the house is soon described as “hog heaven.”
