Two estranged brothers are brought together to launch their father’s ashes into space.
Boldly Gone delivers two great performances in an adeptly crafted short that is neither twee nor overbearing in its sentimentality. It’s refreshing to see such a simple concept brought to film with an accomplished balance of humour and emotional heft. Their relationship is believable and for the small amount of screen-time they share, you really get a sense of their characters.
With a couple of lovely touches in the soundtrack, Boldly Gone will put a smile in your heart without leaving a saccharine taste in your mouth.
