The New Man – a captivating documentary – The DVDfever Review

The New Man is a documentary about becoming a parent which, based on the trailer, made me think this was going to be a little too light-hearted and knockabout, but I was so wrong. The trailer says the film it’s aimed at anyone who has children… anyone who wants them… (and, personally, I have no […]
