We’re your family, Dane! You’re going to wish you had this time back.” A Family Man, starring Gerard Butler as a career headhunter who must struggle with the work-family balance when his 10-year-old son is diagnosed with cancer. This was originally titled The Headhunter’s Calling, and it first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year. In addition to Gerard Butler, the full ensemble cast features Alison Brie, Gretchen Mol, Willem Dafoe, Kathleen Munroe, Dustin Milligan, Alfred Molina, Julia Butters, and Anupam Kher. I hate to say it, but this looks so sappy and emotionally manipulative, that it’s hard to take it seriously. I’m much more interested in seeing Gerard Butler in Geostorm than I am this movie. But these stories still need to be told. DJ Hustle
It looks like Butler is going back to his Dear Frankie days. Since his breakout starring role in 300, Butler has established himself as an entertaining action star. He can deliver cheesy one-liners with commitment and then convincingly take out a room for of goons. But he can also play sensitive and tender characters when given the opportunity. A Family Man is a role where he could show that side of himself.
He’s a worker first, family man second, but after he learns his son has cancer, he begins to see, as most fathers do in these sorts of stories, what’s important. Here’s A Family Man trailer, which starts with the obvious kind of quick cutting expected in a depiction of a fast-paced, cutthroat, big city work environment: HustleTV
