Honey Boy ★★★½

CIFF 2019: film #5

“i’ve missed you for a long time, dad”

so heavy and honest with noteworthy performances all around. an emotional movie about relationships and trauma and identity, but doesn’t scratch the surface much past these and similar other ideas. that’s not a bad thing: it explores these themes so well, i just wish it had a little more going on. but this will definitely be a new favorite for the right people, and i can understand why
