Len and Company

The New York Times
Len and Company...never strains for profundity. Instead, it savors observational subtleties, especially in Mr. Ifans’s assured performance. For a baby-boomer-meets-millennial family drama, that’s plenty.
Luke Y. Thompson
You think you can guess what happens next, but the beauty of Tim Godsall's film, adapted from a play by Carly Mensch, is that it eschews the obvious arcs and come-to-Jesus moments of your typical Bad Dad pics.
The Film Stage
The film proves more than its conventional story presumes. We’ve seen its depiction of mid-life and quarter-life crises—many times with the music industry at its back—but this newest iteration possesses an authenticity rendering it worthwhile nonetheless.
The Hollywood Reporter
Most effective in its quiet dialogue-heavy scenes, the picture stumbles when anything more dramatic is required.
Amid the film’s narrative lulls and lapses, it’s the actors who hold our attention.
Los Angeles Times
Thanks to Ifans, though, this remains a watchable film, one that, perhaps like Len himself, falls short of its potential.
According to Len, rock ‘n roll is "blood, bourbon, and napalm," and it’s exactly those elements that the film needs, but doesn’t provide.
