Eaten by Lions (12A)
2018, directed by Jason Wingard, 95 minutes
People often ask for more comedies to lighten the mood, so here is a good-natured film that everyone can enjoy. Omar and Pete are half-brothers. Omar wants to meet his birth father. Pete joins him on a search that takes them from Bradford to Blackpool. With a well-written script, that delivers its affectionate message about the complexities of British family life deftly, and some strong performances there is plenty to enjoy.
