Harrowing and touching, with stellar performances by Skarsgard and Headley, and a fine supporting turn from Ian Hart.

"Aberdeen" answers the question, "Who makes the better companion on a road trip: an alcoholic or a cocaine addict?" You're probably better off with the alcoholic, even though the cocaine addict, by default, makes for better company. "Aberdeen" answers the question, "Who makes the better companion on a road trip: an alcoholic or a cocaine addict?" You're probably better off with the alcoholic, even though the cocaine addict, by default, makes for better company. When Kaisa asks her father, "Why can't you always be like this," she probably isn't aware of the irony. We'd like to pose the same question towards Kaisa, because the sober version of this broken soul is a lot more tolerable than the foul-mouthed bitch we encounter at the beginning. When Kaisa warms up to her estranged father, it's because she's coming down from her cocaine high, but what's nicely understated, is that this change of heart is directly related to her dying mum. Because Kaisa is strung out on drugs half the time, "Aberdeen" never wallows in sentimentality like other films about dying parents. Expand
