Beautifully filmed and totally absorbing mystery about family secrets.
– Ray Bennett, in a Hollywood Reporter review, 5 July 2005
Brad McGann’s brilliant, involving and ultimately devastating version of In My Father’s Den is that rare type of adaptation: one that doesn’t just successfully translate a great book (although that’s rare enough), but just as successfully updates it and refreshes it, finding new ways into its difficult emotions, amplifying and renewing its themes. [...] His film is one seriously impressive achievement.
– Philip Matthews, in a Listener review, 9 October 2004
But then I had a dream that prompted me to think about it in another way, something that could be set in a different location and based in contemporary times. It meant making some integral changes and taking a different approach.
– Brad McGann, on changing the time and setting from Gee's novel, Onfilm magazine 2004
