Your Internet Celebrity Movie Review — Aberdeen (2000)
Kaisa (Lena Headey), a beautiful and feisty Scottish woman, finally has her life together — at least until her mother (Charlotte Rampling) asks an enormous favor: to bring back to her Kaisa’s estranged, larger-than-life father (Stellan Skarsgard). The two of them, father and daughter together, set out on a wild, brutally funny yet heartbreaking journey, which takes them through their emotional past before reaching their ultimate destination.
This is wonderfully written and acted but depressing road trip movie. As a favor to her dying mother, a young successful lawyer must find her alcoholic father who abandoned them when she was a child. As they travel together, they face both the past and present. This is not a Hollywood feel good reunion movie. This is more harsh and messy. I think every alcoholic should see this movie.
Your Internet Celebrity is giving this one 4 stars.
