Still shot from the movie: The Boys Are Back.

The Boys Are Back

Joe Warr (Clive Owen) is a capable sports writer, but not quite as competent as a father. This he learns after a tragedy turns him into a single parent. Responsible for two sons, one an impressionable six-year-old (Nicholas McNulty) and the other a headstrong teen (George MacKay), Joe attempts to rear his offspring the best way he knows how -- even if his methods are a bit unusual.

How We Determine Our Grades

In the movie Grace Is Gone, a grieving father struggles to find a way to tell his daughters that their mother has been killed while on a tour of duty in Iraq. After three Aboriginal children are taken from their families in the Australian outback and placed in government care, they make a 1200-mile trek back to their home following the country’s famous Rabbit-Proof Fence. Combining a documentary-like script with plenty of action, Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course is a close-up introduction to animal naturalist Steve Irwin and the critters that live down under.
