The Confirmation Trailer

"Your dad is a good man. He's got some demons, but you know, we all do." Lionsgate has debuted a trailer for the comedy The Confirmation, written/directed by Bob Nelson. It stars Clive Owen as an alcoholic, down-on-his-luck carpenter who must take care of his eight-year-old son Anthony, played by Jaeden Lieberher, while his mother and her new husband go to a Catholic retreat. As much as that doesn't sound like a comedy, there is some levity in the dialogue after the situation they find themselves in when Walt's toolbox is stolen. Also starring Patton Oswalt, Robert Forster, Tim Blake Nelson, Matthew Modine & Maria Bello. This looks better than I was expecting, but not sure if it'll be that good. Take a look below.

Here's the first official trailer for Bob Nelson's The Confirmation, high def on Apple:

Clive Owen shines in this comedy as Walt, a down-on-his luck carpenter tasked with entertaining his eight-year-old son Anthony while Anthony’s mom (Maria Bello) and her new husband are away. But when Walt’s prized toolbox is stolen, a quiet father-and-son weekend turns into an adventure of a lifetime. Aided by an oddball drywall repairman (Patton Oswalt), Walt and Anthony go on a wildly funny search for the thieves—and find something they never imagined: a true family connection. The Confirmation is both written and directed by Bob Nelson, making his directorial debut after earning an Oscar nomination for writing the Nebraska screenplay. Lionsgate will release the movie everywhere starting March 18th, 2016.

I like drama when it's good. Most of the time, I think that drama makes best narrative in the film. And this somehow has something good about it. I hope I am not wrong ...

I recently rewatched CHILDREN OF MEN. I wish Owen could make something like that again.
