Unstrung Heroes

SOMETIMES YOU FIND YOUR HEROES IN THE MOST UNLIKELY PLACES.

unstrungheroesWhen young Steven Lidz’s (Nathan Watt) mother (Andie MacDowell) falls ill, he moves temporarily to his eccentric uncles, which becomes a point of concern to his father (John Turturro). Diane Keaton’s first dramatic feature as director (after a documentary and a TV movie) is an autobiographical story based on author Franz Lidz’ life; fans of My Life as a Dog (1985) will enjoy it. Focus is on how the people a kid admires influence him in his adolescent years, how one of his uncles teaches him to be honest, adventurous and to never forget his heritage. Amusing and even a bit touching. Michael Richards plays the uncle like he’s Kramer on Seinfeld.
