Cosford Screening: ‘A Boy Called Dad’

7:00 pm
4:00 pm
6:30 pm

Fourteen-year-old Robbie lives in New Brighton across the River Mersey from Liverpool with his mum, Lynda, and “pain-in-the-arse” 9-year-old sister, Katie. Ever since his dad, Joe, walked out when Robbie was just 4 years old, Robbie has been a boy defined by the absence of a father. Ten years on, Robbie still feels hurt, angry, and lost. Despite Lynda’s failed relationship with Katie’s dad, Katie at least gets to see her dad every weekend—a part-time relationship Robbie covets. All Robbie has ever wanted in life is a dad. Instead, he gets something very different—a son. This film is part of the “From Britain With Love” series that is running at the Bill Cosford Cinema through July 24.
