Synopsis


Wild Bill
A hoodlum tries to go straight for the sake of his kids in this British comedy-drama. Bill (Charlie Creed-Miles) is a small-time crook whose most recent bit of criminal enterprise earned him eight years in prison. Having been released at last, Bill's plan is to head home to East London, reconnect with his family, and then relocate to Scotland, but things change when he discovers his wife has run off with her boyfriend and left their two sons to fend for themselves. Bill is a stranger to eleven-year-old Jimmy (Sammy Williams), while fifteen-year-old Dean (Will Poulter), who has been working odd jobs at construction sites to put food on the table, bitterly hates his father for abandoning the family when he was put behind bars. Bill hardly feels comfortable at home in this current situation, but when he learns that his sons will end up with foster parents unless he can prove to social workers he's a decent father, he begins the uphill struggle to convince people he can care for his kids (and that Dean doesn't hate his guts). Along the way, Bill tries to repair his relationship with his sons and discovers the satisfactions of being a father. Wild Bill was the first directorial effort from veteran character actor Dexter Fletcher. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    This is a good, but not great movie. The acting was very good at times, especially by newcomer Will Poulter. The plot was hard to follow at times and hard to believe, as well. The British accent was also very thick, and the movie would have benefitted from sub-titles for american audiences.
