Editorial Reviews

In his directorial debut, actor Adrian Grenier questions the nature of fatherhood and the meaning of family history as he embarks on a personal quest to become reacquainted with his estranged father. After interviewing a wide array of fathers and sons – from strangers he meets outside of Yankee Stadium, to past and present suitors of his mother Karesse – Adrian decides he should meet with his biological father, whom he’s convinced is a man named John who lives in Lancaster, OH. Following a series of sometimes-awkward phone calls, John finally agrees to meet Adrian for the first time in 18 years at the Ohio home of John’s parents, and the two head off in a cramped boat for a private, heart-to-heart talk. The discussion brings father and son closer together, and sheds light on why John and Karesse separated after Adrian was born. With a newfound sense of self, and after talking again with his mother about the circumstances that led to the couple’s estrangement, Adrian reunites with his father one more time – in dramatic fashion.

No offense to Adrian, I love his acting, but his director debut of this documentary was poor and so I would not recommend this film. I was really looking forward to seeing this film and the storyline about him seeking to find and get to know his biological father, who turned out to be wonderful. It was his mother that was the cause of keeping his father away all those years - an interesting twist. I liked Adrian's honesty throughout the film however in a few parts his directorship lacked integrity. The film pulled the viewers leg with a fake scene as a joke at a critical part in the film. It was totally inappropriate and in really poor taste. Those types of "joke" scenes have no place in the actual film but rather in the bleepers or outtakes section of the DVD. I like Adrian and I hope his films are refined in the future for mass success.

I saw this film twice on HBO and I even wrote to HBO in hopes of Adrian Grenier reading my little note on how much I loved his film. This film is unique, emotional, funny, realistic and, most importantly, human. As young as Adrian was when he made this film, I think he was 23, he proves to be a gifted director already. I personally enjoy documentaries and this one is certainly a favorite. I highly recommend this film and am now looking forward to watching his latest venture Teenage Paparazzo. Please watch this film! You won't regret it.
