Picture from 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.
