The Frontier is a lovely look at the last chapter of a thinking man's life and if he can achieve the one thing he's neglected to do: Earn his son's love.

The relationships are key to this film; there's a lot of emotional ground covered in The Frontier, and so it's good news that the performances are so strong. There's not a single character you don't come to care for by the film's end. Max Gail, Coleman Kelly and Anastassia Sendyk are all great.

The direction by Matt Rabinowitz is assured and confident. His style is refreshingly direct and he serves the film well by steadily tightening his film's focus on the faces and physical dynamics of its three main characters. In Rabinowitz's hands, the inner life of all three are slowly, but lovingly investigated and revealed.

The Frontier, in it's way, is a throwback to the more languid, thoughtful films of the Seventies but it's themes are timeless. What makes a person a success? What makes a person a person? And when, if ever, is it too late?
