The Boys Are Back

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.
