Clive Owen’s Role as a Parent in The Boys Are Back

The true story, family drama “The Boys Are Back” stars Clive Owen, number 25 in Empire Magazine’s list of 100 Sexiest Stars in 2007. Owen, an Oscar nominee and winner of the Golden Globe, Sierra Award, Critics Choice Award and others, plays a journalist whose wife dies of cancer, leaving Owen to raise a young son and a teenager.

Interviewed by Vancouver Sun during the TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival), Owen says, “It felt like I was exploring a big part of my life that I haven’t explored in my work before. I am a parent of two girls and I’ve always seen that as very separate. I go off and make movies and the rest of the time I’m a parent. And this was a script exploring all that world.”
