      Bruce C I was pretty engaged. Afterwards I thought "I've seen this story before." Maybe I've seen Billy Porter on too many talk shows being "fierce," but the performance left a bad taste in my mouth. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/08/24 Full Review Richard H Seriously good queer family drama with a fantastic and inspiring cast. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/14/24 Full Review Michael V Our Son is a 2023 American crime drama film directed by Bill Oliver 👦🏻 Meh, it passed the time. Just. 😐 👍🏼👎🏼 When his husband Gabriel files for divorce, Nicky fights for custody of their 8-year-old son Owen, as he struggles to come to terms with what it means to love someone and what it means to be a father. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/05/24 Full Review Teresa H Amazing! That is all that needs to be said! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/03/24 Full Review Samuel W Deft performances throughout. Phylicia Rashad especially. Great story and wonderfully portrayed. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/02/24 Full Review FRANK F Contrived and boring. Both actors are good but seem amateurish in this awful movie. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/01/24 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Leslie Felperin Guardian All the characters are rounded, fallible and likable in equal measure, and even if the score is a bit syrupy, it’s a pleasant, engaging watch. Rated: 3/5 Mar 19, 2024 Full Review Manuel Betancourt Variety While this New York City-set divorce drama offers enough modern tweaks on a well-worn narrative, its emotional resonance remains elusive, muted even Dec 18, 2023 Full Review Beatrice Loayza New York Times A simple yet engaging melodrama... Dec 7, 2023 Full Review Sarah Manvel Critic's Notebook “Our Son” is a definitely a gay movie by, for, and about adults; and the rarity of this makes it essential viewing. Apr 5, 2024 Full Review Josh Winning Radio Times Porter is fantastic, but the film really belongs to Evans, who is hugely affecting as the busy working man struggling to figure out how to be a father. Rated: 3/5 Mar 27, 2024 Full Review Andrew Murray The Upcoming Evans and Porter’s phenomenal performances ensure that viewers feel every blow of their custody battle.
