Ray Liotta, Rose Leslie, Justin Bartha, Gina Rodriquez / Fiction / English

Touching story of a father/daughter relationship.

Scottish actress Rose Leslie (Game of Thrones) shines in this impressive comedy/drama, as a struggling dancer trying to hit the big-time in Los Angeles. She gives it all up to care for her ill father Jack (Ray Liotta) in Florida but when the chance of a lifetime comes up she feels she cannot pass up the opportunity. This attractively staged film dwells on the tough – and often tender and funny – nature of father/daughter relationships, with a strong cast also featuring Justin Bartha and Gina Rodriguez. [12A]
