Marvin, Seth and Stanley (2012) MIFF Film Review

MarvinSethStanleyfeature

USA 72mins

A grumpy father takes his grown sons on a fishing trip. That’s pretty much it. He’s grumpy, one of his sons is hot-headed and tends to drink too much, the other is an aspiring actor.

The characters were believable if a little stereotyped, but I just found that there was not enough story, personality or conflict to engage me in this film. It felt as though perhaps something would happen around the corner, but then it didn’t.

Marvin, Seth and Stanley screens at ACMI on Saturday, July 27 and at Greater Union on Saturday, August 3 at 6:30pm. To book tickets, visit http://miff.com.au/
