Romulus, my father - Eric Bana, Franka Potente, Marton Csokas, Richard Roxburgh

Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

Romulus, my father is based on Raimond Gaita's critically acclaimed memoir. It tells the story of Romulus, his beautiful wife, Christina, and their struggle in the face of great adversity to bring up their son, Raimond.

It is the tale of a boy trying to balance a universe described by his deeply moral father, against the experience of heartbreaking absence and neglect from a depressive mother. It is, ultimately, a story of impossible love that celebrates the unbreakable bond between father and son.
