Ok, Gerald McCullouch did a fine job with the movie & the subject matter. I made the mistake of reading the reviews halfway through, which ruined it for me, so I stopped watching. I decided a few hours later to keep watching it & I'm glad I did. I got to the "twist" & the other side. I love the ending with both best-pals sitting there talking about being a family & the little quip about "our kid".
I don't want to ruin anything about the movie. I will say this, of you are a fan of Gerald MCullouch, you will love him in this. As to the subject matter, get over it and enjoy the whole story.
Highly r3commended. I also highly recommend not reading the reviews.
The film itself is quality. Great performances, a good level of technical professionalism, and a story that entertains and challenges its viewer with a genuinely fresh twist ending (too bad the disc makes the ending unwatcahble so I guess I will have to wait until my refunded copy to know for sure). This is also one of perhaps 10 or less movies that tackle intergenerational homosexual relationships, period, so that considered its good to have a legitimately engaging movie built around that topic.
Overall, this is a pretty good film; 4 out of 5 stars. Its an interesting story that has never been told until now. People of the LGBT community, especially gay men who have intergenerational relationships, should check this one out. In a subgenre of a subgenre where you have less than 10 films in existence, "Daddy" proves that such stories should not only be told, but can be told very well. Its truly just a shame that the quality of the disc is so awful; be prepared to have the otherwise awesome movie interrupted by glitches and hiccups and dont be too surprised when you find yourself requesting either a copy that actually works or a full refund.
I am so glad to have seen such a poignant movie which deals with a taboo subject with such understanding. I did not know Gerald McCullough but I now know him and will search through all his work.
