The Boys Are Back
Scott Hicks (Shine) returns to Australia to direct this poignant drama of fatherhood, starring the talented Clive Owen. It follows Joe, a wise-cracking British sports journalist, living family life in regional South Australia. In the wake of his wife's tragic death, he finds himself in a sudden state of single parenthood with six-year-old Artie. With turbulent emotions swirling, and Joe's elder teenage son coming to stay, he's faced with raising two boys in a household devoid of feminine influence and an unabashed lack of rules. United by unspoken love and in search of a road forward, the three multi-generational boys - father and sons alike - must each find their own way to grow up.
