CATCH ME DADDY CATCHES CANNES CRITICS' PRAISE


Debut feature director Daniel Wolfe is set to see his star rise over the coming years if reviews for his Cannes screener, Catch Me Daddy, are anything to go by. Showing in the Directors' Fortnight selection, the film has been described as an English Western, and tells the story of an honour killing on the Yorkshire moors. After doing such lovely work on Andrea Arnold's Wuthering Heights, Robbie Ryan returns to the region to serve as DP on Wolfe's film, which is here reviewed by Oliver Lyttleton in The Playlist, Robbie Collin in The Telegraph, Stephen Dalton in The Hollywood Reporter, Charles Gant in Variety and Peter Bradshaw in The Guardian.
