Film: Wild Bill

Former tough guy Bill (Charlie Creed-Miles) has just been released from prison but instead of returning to the world of crime he concentrates on helping his two young sons. The boys have been fending for themselves for some time and teenager Dean, (Will Poulter) reckons they are better off without their Father around.

Actor turned director Dexter Fletcher (The Rachel Papers) has done a fine job with this genre-bending film. It’s a part crime drama, part comedy, coming-of-age tale that applies to both Father and sons.

The entire cast turn in decent performances with Will Poulter stealing the show as the troubled teen who has to deal with various family issues while pursuing a blossoming romance.

Funny, poignant and dramatic, Wild Bill is another example of fine UK film-making.

You can catch it on Sky Movies here in the UK and it’s available everywhere on DVD.

Ric’s Rating: Highly Recommended.
