“This job is a desk a phone and you’re a*s.” In ‘A Family Man’ Dane (Gerard Butler) is a big time head hunter too busy for his wife and kids. After his boss (Willem Dafoe) of a Chicago-based head hunter, retires, Jensen finally achieves his longtime goal of taking over the company after going up against his ambitious rival, Lynn Vogel (Alison Brie).
“Sometimes I feel that you don’t really live here you just sleep here. I’m worried about Ryan I made an appointment for him to see the doctor.” However, upon taking over the company he worked so hard to be in control of, Dane’s 10-year-old son, Ryan (Max Jenkins) is diagnosed with cancer, derailing the self-assured deal-closer’s corporate ambitions, providing a wake-up call for a corporate workaholic who realizes every parent’s nightmare. His professional priorities at work and personal priorities at home begin to clash with one another. “My dad is the only one that makes me feel safe.”
“Every family has its issues but you only have one family.” “Everything I need I already have.” Directed by Mark Williams and written by Bill Dubuque ‘A Family Man: The Headhunter’s Calling’ stars Gerard Butler, Willem Dafoe, Anupam Kher, Alfred Molina, Alison Brie, and Gretchen Mol.
