Critic Reviews for Working Man
First-time director Robert Jury's Working Man finds suspense amidst the humdrum, and love among the rubble of a marriage put on hold.
If the writing is sometimes sentimental, the simple familiarity of the visuals strikes an honest note.
You put up with lines such as "Last thing the company needs is some broken-down geriatric getting left behind!" if performers as canny as Gerety, Brown and Shire are there to humanize the characters on screen.
Once the movie shifts gears, it's less about the working man and more about the human. That sounds like a good thing, but the further "Working Man" creeps into emotionally over-calibrated basic cable territory, the less real it feels.
Writer-director Robert Jury has pieced together a timely, elegiac slice of Rust Belt life and of the good men and women who want nothing more than to work and provide for their families but find themselves on the outside looking in.
