Today’s best bet, based on the new movies added to the Netflix Instant Watch list, is The Boys Are Back.
It got a few tepid reviews, but it still holds a 76 rating on Rotten Tomatoes and could be a real treat for Clive Owen fans. Here is the plot:
Following the sudden death of his wife, Australian sportswriter Joe Warr (Clive Owen) struggles to cope with his grief and comfort his young son (Nicholas McAnulty). Being a single father gets even trickier when Joe’s rebellious teenage son from a previous marriage (George MacKay) moves in. Director Scott Hicks helms this touching — and often hilarious — tale of a family in flux, based on a memoir by Simon Carr.
