The Boys Are Back

Well, here we are: a father and two sons. Given its inadequacies, I like it.

There is nothing playing at the moment, please check again soon.

    The Boys Are Back Synopsis

    A funny and emotional film about being a lone parent in a world with few rules.

    In a story both moving and humorous, Clive Owen plays journalist Joe Warr tragically thrust into single parenthood. Determined to create a family with two sons from different marriages, Joe throws the rule book out of the window and devises a philosophy for bringing up boys, only to find he has a lot to learn about fatherhood and about himself. Based on the memoir by Simon Carr.
