THE BOYS ARE BACK Movie Trailer with Clive Owen
Check out the trailer for THE BOYS ARE BACK starring Clive Owen, Laura Fraser, Emma Booth, Tommy Bastow, George MacKay, and directed by Scott Hicks.
I don’t know if I can really be impartial here, because Clive Owen in a movie pretty much means that I have to see it. But what I can say about the trailer is that it’s sort of a coming of age story between a father and his two sons, and I really enjoyed it.
The Boys Are Back will be released to theaters on September 25, 2009. Watch the trailer below.
The Boys Are Back Synopsis: Inspired by a true story, The Boys Are Back is a deeply moving, wryly confessional tale of fatherhood, that intimately evokes both the fragility and wonders of family life. It follows a witty, wisecracking, action-oriented sportswriter (Academy Award® nominee and Golden Globe® winner CLIVE OWEN) who, in the wake of his wife’s tragic death, finds himself in a sudden, stultifying state of single parenthood. With turbulent emotions swirling just below the surface, Joe Warr throws himself into the only child-rearing philosophy he thinks has a shot at bringing joy back into their lives: “just say yes.” Raising two boys ? a curious six year-old (NICHOLAS MCANULTY) and a rebel teen (GEORGE MACKAY) from a previous marriage — in a household devoid of feminine influence, and with an unabashed lack of rules, life becomes exuberant, instinctual, reckless… and on the constant verge of disaster.
United by unspoken love, conflicted by fierce feelings and in search of a road forward, the three multi-generational boys of the Warr household, father and sons alike, must each find their own way, however tenuous, to grow up. Their story is not just about the transforming power of a family crisis — but the unavoidable grace of everyday life and love that gets them through.
