Edinburg Reviews for Jake Gavin’s HectorMarc Ehrenbold
Critics are definitely impressed by Jake Gavin’s brilliant film directorial debut entitled “Hector”, headlined by Peter Mullan. It is a moving story of an honest, caring homeless man who puts off his yearly Christmas pilgrimage to reconnect with his estranged family.
Allan Brown of Movie Review World writes –
“Gavin’s choice to frame the character and the subject matter in this light is nothing short of a breath of fresh air, a liberating experience that is devoid of the usual social 8 stereotypes so so common in films…Hector is a crowning achievement for all involved…”
Neil Young from The Hollywood Reporter also writes –
“Gavin’s achievement here is to craft a drama that conveys the hard-knock realities of homelessness while maintaining a gentle, wry and sometimes humorous tones – a tricky balancing act that even experienced filmmakers can find problematic.”
