You’ll be seeing a lot more about Ant Timpson's Come to Daddy around these parts during the next couple of weeks. It’s just a movie we are very fond of and its release is just around the corner. We’ve already reviewed the film out of Fantasia and Fantastic Fest.
I haven’t actually reviewed it, but I can tell you it offers a perfect blend of humor and dark thrills. Above all, it’s a highly original film. From one scene to the next, I had absolutely no idea what was going to happen, which is very refreshing. Plus that cast! Not just Elijah Wood with funny hair, but some real character actor heavyweights show up as well like Stephen McHattie, Michael Smiley and Martin Donovan.
Anyway, you should see it. And if you want to see it right, Drafthouse is hosting a screening of the film with a live Q&A all over on February 3. You can get your tickets here. The film will have a limited run after that, but I highly recommend you see it this way, if only because it’s early and you want the film to be a surprise before everyone starts making memes out of Elijah Wood’s hilarious look in the film.
