Actor/writer David Haig pens and stars in this war drama tracing author Rudyard Kipling's search for his seventeen year old son after the boy is reported missing during World War I. Jack Kipling (Daniel Radcliffe) has vanished, prompting concerned parents Rudyard (Haig) and his wife to set out in search of their son. Based on the 1997 play of the same name, this BAFTA-nominated drama co-stars Kim Cattrall and Carey Mulligan. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Nice production all 'round by underdog January 2, 2011 - 10:21 PM PST
Based on story of Rudyard Kipling and his son Jack, who serves in WWI and then disappears, this British TV production is very well done. I was pleasantly surprised (don't know why, but I was), especially at Daniel "Harry Potter" Radcliffe's proving he can act away from Hogwarts, and the rest of the cast is lovely as well (Carey Mulligan, now quite well known for An Education and other films, David Haig, who also wrote it, as Kipling Sr., and even Kim Catrrall is good here). It's a moving story, not exactly Paths of Glory but very worthy war drama on a more intimate scale.
