In the 1990’s, Lachlan MacAldonich was on top of the world. He was in a pop band from Britain and he had a lot of hit songs on the radio. Now he maintains a low profile working on an organic farm in Los Angeles. He also works on a podcast, Flame-Outs, about the untimely deaths of his favorite musicians including his brother. Lachlan is pulled over for drunken driving and a previous drug offense in his past are used against him for deportation.
Robert Carlyle was in The Full Monty and Trainsposting, he does a good job as Lachlan but this lead character is not very likeable once the charm of his nice accent wears off. How can I care about whether or not he’s deported if I’m not sure he belongs here? Not enough substance, I keep wondering why I am watching? 2 1/2* (This movie is just so-so)
95 min, Drama directed by Marshall Lewy with Robert Carlyle, Danny Masterson, Sean McCraken, Kathleen Wilhoite, William Russ, A Martinez, Michael Des Barres.
