Time of the Dad

In Sept. 25’s The Boys Are Back, a based-on-a-true-story movie directed by Scott Hicks (Shine), the I’ll-watch-him-in-anything-always Clive Owen plays Joe, a man ill-prepared to raise his two sons alone after the untimely passing of his second wife.

Without a roadmap for how to move on and forward with their lives, the three decide it’s best to leave convention behind, and lead a life based on a mantra of just saying yes.

But when things go awry, Joe is forced to step up and behave like a parent, and he must figure out how to do so without completely abandoning the joy shared in their new world.
