Fathers and Daughters: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

Brilliant author Jake Davis (Russell Crowe) needs to leave his daughter Katie (Kyle Rogers) to his sister-in-law (Diane Kruger) in order for him get treatment after a fatal car accident that killed his wife. He spends a year on the rehab but when he returns, his in-laws already had a plan to adopt Katie. Jake refuses and takes Katie home and while he struggles to fight his illness; he also needs to come-up with something to provide her daughter. 

On the parallel side of the story, we now see a grown-up Katie (Amanda Seyfried), who always has casual sex with each guy he meets. However, things changes when she is courted by an aspiring writer Cameron (Aaron Paul). She tries to enter a relationship like never before, but she is too reluctant to give in as her past still haunts her each day. 
Fathers and Daughters is an intriguing family drama on the first look. It has a great set of talented actors in one picture, with Academy Award Winner Russell Crowe leading the cast. However, the abundance of stars couldn't quite reason out with its dull and uninteresting story. The film  feels too long and hard to sit through as they are just thrown inside a lame story book. Crowe and Seyfried may have given enough for us to chew on, but the plot is just boring and predictable. 

Overall, Fathers and Daughters is a total waste of talent. Assembling a cast full of potential should have done the trick but with a material so thin to work with - all of their efforts were squandered and left to be forgotten.
