FATHER SOLDIER SON

Cert 15 Stars 4

Deeply personal and poignant, this Fly on the wall documentary portrait of fatherhood undergoes a ten year tour of duty following the family of 3rd generation soldier Sgt Brian Eisch.

There’s happiness, anger, anguish and heartache after a tour in Afghanistan sees him coping with a life-changing injury and raising two young sons. What this lacks in the outrageous characters of Netflix documentaries such as The Tiger King, or the sporting glamour of The Last Dance, it makes up with quiet dignity and is a compelling, inspiring and at times heartbreaking watch.
