Family mystery and intrigue guide this film to success
11 August 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Director Marc Webb ("500 Days of Summer" and "Gifted" to name a few) affirms his place on the director's chair with his latest heart filled "The Only Living Boy in New York". Jeff Bridges (riding high on his resurgence), stars and narrates this dysfunctional family drama with a slow and concise presentation that draws the viewer in. The film features Pierce Brosnan (in a family man role that becomes him), Kate Beckinsale ("Underworld") as the other women, Cynthia Nixon as his tormented wife, Callum Turner ("War & Peace" TV Mini-series) as the conflicted son, and Kersey Clemons ("Neighbors 2") as his friend-gal. Director Webb, along with writer Allan Loeb ("The Switch"), present a storyline that both looks and feels familiar, yet is comfortably set in family mystery. Their ability to hold the viewer at arms length, yet keep the audience fully invested is movie magic. Brosnan hasn't had a solid role like this in quite some time. Beckinsale is the woman to hate. Nixon (possible Gov. Nixon to New Yorkers) knows how to hold back, and Turner and Clemons have breakout roles here that will surly turn them in to household names. The film also includes some nice character performances, including Wallace Shawn ("Toy Story" VO), Debi Maza ("Entourage") and Bill Camp ("The Night of") to name a few. "The Only Living Boy in New York" marks the beginning of the Award consideration season.
