The domestication of Clive Owen. Instead of a spy or a desperado, the rugged actor plays a newly widowed English transplant sportswriter in Australia who is suddenly obliged to reconcile his grieving six-year-old son (Nicholas McAnulty) with the kid’s half-brother (George MacKay), the Owen character’s estranged teenage son from a previous marriage. Surprise — Owen is almost as convincing hugging his boys as he was leaping off rooftops. Alan Cubitt’s screenplay, adapted from Simon Carr’s novel, is pretty much standard-brand single-dad-sitcom stuff, but it’s directed with a minimum of treacle by Scott Hicks (Shine), and Owen broadens his resume with a family-friendly outing (104 min.).
