After receiving a cryptic letter from his estranged father, Norval travels to his dad’s oceanfront home for what he hopes will be a positive experience. If only he’d known the dark truth about his old man beforehand.
To paraphrase director Ant Timpson, ‘Come to Daddy’ is for people who laugh when they see somebody walk into a glass door, then laugh even harder when they notice that the person got a bloody nose. Personally, I found the film to be a delightful and unexpected highlight of the Sydney Film Festival.
