It’s the time of year when I get to pretend I’m hard done by; slaving away in darkened cinemas, gorging on the finest films the Times BFI 52nd London Film Festival has to offer. The upside to my valiant sacrifice is that I’m a sharing kinda guy:
Whilst most of us are happy to simply revisit fond memories of our childhood homes, director Azazel Jacobs used it as the living set of his feature Momma’s Man, even casting his folks as the parents of Mikey [Matt Boren], a married man and new father who’s reluctance to return to his family sees him rediscover his younger life.
Momma’s Man (2008)
A man who has avoided his wife and child at home has a change of heart after an imposed stay in his own parents’ loft.
