"Katsottu: 6.12.2013 TV:stä **** William Bloom (Billy Crudup) ei ole puhunut isälleen Edwardille (Albert Finney) pitkään aikaan. Kun Will saa tietää että hänen isänsä on kuolemansairas, hän lähtee vaimonsa (Marion Cotillard) kannsa takaisin lapsuudenkotiinsa. Will ei ole koskaan uskonut isänsä kertomia tarinoita, joissa nuorena Edinä seikkailee Ewan McGregor (Trainspotting). Muissa rooleissa nähdään mm. Danny DeVito (Batman - paluu), Steve Buscemi (Fargo), Helena Bonham Carter "
