Movie Greats, 8.30pm

★★★ A bleak, yet highly at­mo­spheric road movie. Hugo Weav­ing plays an itin­er­ant sin­gle fa­ther on the run with his 10-year-old son in tow. Weav­ing’s im­pec­ca­ble han­dling of a dif­fi­cult, near-un­lik­able char­ac­ter en­hances a pic­ture that oth­er­wise might have worn out its wel­come. Over­all ef­fect could be likened to Ro­mu­lus, My Fa­ther meets The Shi­ralee. Tough go­ing, but worth­while. L.P.
