The Son - 1 Star - January 20, 2023

Hugh Jackman plays a New York lawyer embarking on a new life with a younger wife and baby in The Son. Ex-wife Laura Dern arrives with news their teen aged son is in trouble.  The soap suds start early and overpower the plot.  The son moves in with the father and new wife and oh boy you can see the rest of this a mile away.  Jackman feels particularly miscast.  Hugh Jackman, Vanessa Kirby, Laura Dern, and Zen McGrath (who plays the problem child) deserve better.
