The Confirmation becomes a string of father-son misadventures that lack memorable characters or engaging dialogue.
This is a smart, effective coming-of-age tale about a boy figuring out that there are gray areas to life's moral choices.
Nelson ties perhaps too neat of a bow on the proceedings, but there's no denying the warmth and amiable spirit of "The Confirmation."
The pleasures are modest but rewarding in Bob Nelson's character study "The Confirmation."
The Confirmation is a powerful directorial debut from 59-year-old writer Bob Nelson, who received an Oscar nomination for his first screenplay, Nebraska.
Feature films these days rarely come as gentle and equitable as "The Confirmation."
Led by the terrific performances of Clive Owen and the continuously impressive Jaden Lieberher, The Confirmation is a father-son story of high emotional and spiritual value.
Clive Owen wears a checked flannie better than your average movie star.
Owen, with his hangdog handsomeness, brings a fragile sense of legitimacy to our hope that Walt is a good man. Lieberher is superb as his straight-talking and honest son. The scenes between the two are tender and sometimes funny.
It's amusing and endearing but rather flat dramatically
A little gem of a film from the writer of the acclaimed film Nebraska (2013), this is a charming two hander in which a single dad and his young son bond during the weekend from hell
A gritty, compellingly-acted but lightly-amusing "Bicycle Thieves" set in the working class despair of modern America.
One of the treats of this blue collar father/son bonding experience weekend is how much lying is woven into the fabric of our lives, and how we manage to find worth despite the tsunami of them. Even the people trying not to lie are in fact lying quite a bit. For that reason alone this work is the most mature rendering seen perhaps ever and worthy of must see status.
