"ROMULUS, MY FATHER is the poignant, occasionally harrowing -- though high-spirited and seemingly incandescent -- story of a young boy growing up in the Australian bush not long after the end of World War II."
Actor Richard Roxburgh makes a smooth transition to directing with this moving drama adapted from Raimond Gaita's memoir. Eric Bana (MUNICH) stars as Romulus, a Yugoslavian man who struggles to raise his young son alone in Victoria, Australia. After the family moves from Europe, his wife's depression takes over and she leaves her husband and son alone to fend for themselves in the foreign country. Franka Potente (THE BOURNE IDENTITY) plays the absent mother, while Marton Csokas and Russell Dykstra costar.
