I’m a sucker for movies that focus on the relationship between a father and his child. These films speak to me for fairly obvious reasons and I’m always moved by that dynamic when a film captures it really well. That’s the main reason I’m really excited for “Light of My Life”.
Casey Affleck writes and directs himself and relative newcomer Anna Pniowsky in this gritty, post-apocalyptic drama. The film’s father/daughter pair lives in a world where a plague was wiped out the entire female population save one little girl (and I bet you can guess who). To protect his daughter, the dad disguises her as a boy and attempts to navigate her through the ugliness of the new world.
“Light of My Life” has me really excited. It releases August 9th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
