My latest review for Film Festival Today: The Water Man!
Between the new family in town, the somewhat-haunted forest, a local legend, one dying parent, an estranged relationship with the other, and running away from home, one might expect The Water Man to feel like a bundle of strewn-together clichés. Instead, David Oyelowo’s directorial feature debut is a well-paced and cohesive expedition into that strange and wondrous place where imagination meets reality…
I enjoyed “The Water Man” tremendously – even if it made me a bit misty-eyed.
I am really looking forward to whatever David Oyelowo is planning to do next!
