You can’t choose your father.
Neither can you choose your son.
Watch the Dutch Waterboys movie, so you can be entertained as a father and son work through their complicated relationship.
As a small child, I thought I’d somehow have it “all” figured out, when I became an adult.
Clearly, that wasn’t accurate.
There are always things to learn and that is especially true, when it comes to family relationships.
Waterboys is entertaining as is, but it can also be thought provoking on a deeper level.
The title of the film comes from The Waterboys and their classic hit song from 1985, The Whole of The Moon.
And, yes, they do make an appearance in the movie.
Waterboys is in Dutch and has English subtitles.
The movie isn’t rated, but is probably best enjoyed by teens and adults.
Release Date 5/22/18
The film tells a humorous and moving story of the evolving relationship between crime novelist Victor and his cello-playing son Zack.
When Zack is dumped by his girlfriend and Victor is dumped by Zack’s mother on the same day, the two men grieve and briefly console one another before heading off on a trip to Scotland.
Victor hopes to promote his latest book and, also, spend some bonding time with Zack.
Victor’s selfish tendencies nearly alienate the fragile relationship he shares with his son, and the trip becomes increasingly turbulent as the reasons for the pairs’ domestic troubles come to light.
