Single dad moves to Germany for work, bringing his reluctant, rap-obsessed teen son along with him. The Sundance-friendly plot made comic drama MORRIS FROM AMERICA a hit in Park City in January, but Chicago proves only half-friendly, as Adam and Josh splitting on director Chad Hartigan's new film. And Josh was busy editing his book
over the weekend, so Adam had to turn to the Call-a-Critic line to help him with reviews of Ira Sach's LITTLE MEN (Village Voice's Alan Scherstuhl) and the Obama-first-date movie SOUTHSIDE WITH YOU (rogerebert.com's Odie Henderson). Plus, a farewell to comedy legend Gene Wilder, thoughts on the new horror-thriller DON'T BREATHE, and the final film in the Contemporary Nordic Cinema Marathon, 2015 Cannes-winner RAMS from Iceland.
