Come to Daddy (2019) (BLU-RAY REVIEW)
DIRECTED BY: Ant Timpson
Starring: Elijah Wood, Stephen McHattie, Garfield Wilson
AVAILABLE FROM Lionsgate Films

Norval Greenwood (Elijah Wood), a privileged man-child, arrives at the beautiful and remote coastal cabin of his estranged father, who he hasn’t seen in 30 years. He quickly discovers that not only is Dad a disapproving jerk, but he also has a shady past that is rushing to catch up with him. Now, hundreds of miles from his cushy comfort zone, Norval must battle with demons both real and perceived in order to reconnect with a father he barely knows.

I find it hard to believe now that there was ever a time that I questioned how well Elijah Wood would do away from being Frodo in The Lord of the Rings. Using a little of what we saw in Sin City from him and then going on through many other movies since Elijah Wood has proven himself to a great actor and especially in weird and genre-bending movies. Come to Daddy is Wood giving another great performance, but I do have to admit that the movie wasn’t really doing much for me until the movie’s big twist that sends us into the latter end of the movie. Up until that point, his acting is great and the movie plot is very strange. After that twist in question, it’s a whole other ballgame and I was very much digging the most of what I saw up until the ever slightly awkward ending.

It all starts when a man in his 30s (Wood shows up at his father’s doorstep. Keep in mind that these two are estranged and he’s not sure what he’s being asked to come there. Once he arrives the two don’t really hit it off and the tension builds until we reach the portion of the movie I mentioned and we are off and running. While odd (not totally in a bad way) the first part of this one was a bit too awkward for me in the thick of things. I was so happy when the twist came in and the violence and stuff followed because this was a movie that really did need a jumpstart like that when it happens. This is a movie you’ll want to see for Elijah Woods, but you probably won’t really dig it overall until the second half of it gets really going.
