Editors Note
Note Clive Owen has taken on the role of men living dangerous lives, such as a bank robber (INSIDE MAN) and an ex-secret agent (DUPLICITY), but those types might seem easy next to being a single father in this dramedy. After the death of his wife, Joe Warr is left with two sons and zero ideas on how to run his house. Soon, the home devolves into chaos, and Joe must decide if his parenting plan wasn't such a good idea after all.
