    Badgley, best known for playing "lonely boy" Dan Humphrey on Gossip Girl, is a revelation. He wears his role like a second skin. show more

    For all the star’s efforts, the movie itself ends up little more than an exploitation item, a sad place-holder until the real thing comes along. show more

    Deborah Young The Hollywood Reporter

    Dan Algrant’s lyrical recreation of a father-son relationship seen over time, through memory and music, has a sense of urgent originality that works even apart from its great Tim Buckley score. show more

    Penn Bagley performed reasonably well. However, my reservations are that it is not well advertised that other than there being a Tim Buckley Tribute in April, 1991, the plot is fictional. Jeff Buckley already knew about his father's history and career. He didn't need anyone to re- introduce him. Nor did he consider Tim his father; that role was occupied by his step-father, Ron Moorhead.
