St. Vincent

Love Thy Neighbour


St. Vincent
A single mother moves into a new home in Brooklyn with her 12-year old son. Forced to work long hours, she has no choice but to leave her son in the care of their new neighbour, a retired curmudgeon with a penchant for alcohol and gambling. An odd friendship soon blossoms between the improbable pair. Together with a pregnant stripper, the old man takes the boy along on all the stops that make up his daily routine, which includes the race track, a strip club, and the local dive bar. This helps the boy grow to become a man, while in return he begins to see in the old man something that no one else is able to: a misunderstood man with a good heart.

Cape Argus / The Star
Theresa Smith quote iconA showcase for the best of curmudgeon Murray.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconSt. Vincent may be a little kinder and gentler than the likes of Bad Santa, but there's enough inappropriate behavior and comedic friction to fuel an entertaining 103 minutes.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconBill Murray shines in this tale of an old coot who softens up thanks to the latchkey kid next door,

Tomatometer quote iconSt. Vincent offers the considerable pleasure of seeing Bill Murray back in funny form, but drifts into dangerously sentimental territory along the way.
