When Did You Last See Your Father?

The Brits seem to have a knack for assembling this kind of irresistible schmaltz, and this oh-so-British weeper nicely delivers all the prime elements. Unhurried and atmospheric, the lead character, Blake (Colin Firth, Bridget Jones’s Diary), is even a poet. It seems Blake's pop—Arthur (Jim Broadbent, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull), a jolly, drunken clown who cheats on mum—is dying of cancer. The film jumps around between different periods in Blake’s life to illuminate the troubled relationship between father and son. 92 minutes PG-13.
