Thomas Haden Church delivers one of his best performances.
Thomas Haden Church has a brand new film called Acidman. Church is best known for playing Lowell on Wings, starring alongside Paul Giamatti in 2004’s Sideways and playing the iconic Spider-Man villain Sandman. His latest film also stars Dianna Agron. Alex Lehmann directs it, and it will be in theaters and On Demand on March 31, 2023.
Maggie tracks down her estranged father, Lloyd, now living in the Oregon wilderness and obsessed with UFOs. Together, they attempt to make first contact.
This father-daughter film tackles essential subjects such as mental health, parenthood, and loneliness. These topics come to the forefront thanks to a character-driven story. The chemistry between Thomas Haden Church and Diana Agron is undeniable, and that is due to the time they spent together crafting this story and bringing their own experiences to the role. Church delivers a fantastic performance as a secluded father obsessed with Extraterrestrial intelligence. This dialogue-heavy film may turn off some moviegoers, but it hits all the emotional beats. The intimate story about making connections is thought-provoking. The movie has a serious tone, but light moments are sprinkled in, along with touching moments.
I give Acidman 3.5 out of 5 stars. This film, which debuted last year’s Tribeca Film Festival, is worth the watch thanks to two strong performances and a story many can relate to. Read more Reviews on Nerdtropolis and Subscribe to our YouTube.
