clips and trailers: Wild Bill (2012)No Comment
Wild Bill is the directorial debut of actor Dexter Fletcher. You may remember him from such tv shows as Hotel Babylon and Band of Brothers. I don’t… because I’ve never watched those shows… but you might.
In any case, Wild Bill is a British family driven drama. Not usually my kind of thing but there have been some great British films recently like Tyrannosaur and Another Year so I’m willing to give this one a go.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Out on parole after 8 years inside, Bill Hayward returns home to find his now 11 and 15-year old sons abandoned by their mother and fending for themselves. Unwilling to play Dad, his arrival brings them to the attention of social services…
With the danger of being put into care looming, Dean forces his Dad to stay by threatening to grass him up for dealing. Dean soon connects with Jimmy and through this new bond starts to realize what he’s been missing. He has a family and a place in the world, but when Jimmy gets into trouble with Bill’s old cohorts, he quickly has to decide what kind of Dad he wants to be. A good one, or a free one.
