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.
