Discovering your parents are fallible is a classic rite-of-passage. But realising your adored dad’s a deranged fantasist getting nuttier by the second is a touch more traumatic.
Justin Kerrigan’s first feature since 1999’s Human Traffic is based on his own relationship with his father; no wonder it’s so harrowing and deeply felt.
Robert Carlyle, at his most compellingly watchable, is Dad, spinning paranoid yarns about secret missions and evil TV satellite companies; newcomer Arron Fuller, scarily accomplished, is 11-year-old Jamie, forced to grow up way too fast.
Funny, intense and poignant – this is a triumph of low-budget movie-making.
