Catch Me Daddy
Sameena Jabeen Ahmed stars as a girl on the run from her family with her drifter boyfriend in Daniel Wolfe's thriller
Less frantic than some Simon works - and all the more welcome for it - this gentle comedy explores the familiar territory of family relationships. Nora (Mason), a single mother, looks after her nice teenage son (Broderick). On the periphery is another nice guy - a cop who is investigating the theft of her car. Into this frugal but calm existence comes Max (Robards Jr) the father who left home when Nora was nine. He's loaded with Las Vegas money and guilt. He's also dying. Simon milks the type of situation he is so adept at dreaming up.
Ross directs competently and the cast could not be bettered.
