|Paramount Classics | Release Date: October 12, 2001||CRITIC SCORE DISTRIBUTION|
Risks seeming too earnestly therapeutic for its own good. But what makes My First Mister a successful feature directing debut for Lahti is the emotional veracity it summons.
Offers something rare for a modern movie: an uncynical depiction of the redemptive power of human relationships.
It's a real shame the film gets mushy at the end. The result is an all too conventional ending on a film that should have been much better.
