The Boys Are Back

Clive Owen stars in this surprisingly sincere comedy-drama about a sports writer who becomes a single parent in tragic circumstances. It veers close to sentimentality, but Owen saves it as the tough but ultimately clueless widower trying to forge a functional family with his motherless young son and his teenage offspring of a previous marriage. It's directed by Scott Hicks, who gave us Shine (and No Reservations, but we'll forget that). 104 minutes PG-13.
