Fathers and Daughters

Fathers and Daughters


A Pulitzer-winning writer grapples with being a widower and father after a mental breakdown, while, 27 years later, his grown daughter struggles to forge connections of her own.

The critical consensus

The result is an A-list guilty pleasure.

***(*)(*)James Mottram, The List, 09/11/2015

Gabriele Muccino’s muddled, overwrought soapy drama.

**(*)(*)(*)Ian Freer, Empire Online, 11/11/2015

A portentous, schmaltzy melodrama.

**(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 13/11/2015

It is so contrived and wastes a great cast.

**(*)(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 13/11/2015

If this were a novel it would have been pulped already.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 14/11/2015

Russell Crowe fails to convince as a novelist struggling with stress and parenthood.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Mark Kermode, The Observer, 15/11/2015

A strongly acted but unconvincing drama.

**(*)(*)(*)Henry Fitzherbert, Sunday Express, 15/11/2015
