It’s no easy job being a father, don’t let anyone tell you differently. You cannot say for certain that you are prepared for all the drama, the emotions, the responsibilities, and the fears that come with fatherhood.
The Kevin Hart we know is supposed to have us rolling around laughing, but his new film titled Fatherhood will have viewers tearing up too, leaving them unsure of what emotion they really want to focus on.
We get to see Kevin Hart playing Matt in the trailer of this movie, as he struggles with being the best parent that he can be for his little daughter. The scene shows that Kevin Hart had been left to raise his daughter on his own, we observe, as he places flowers on the grave of his deceased wife.
Widowed just a day after his wife gave birth, Matt told his daughter as he held her in his arms, "If you could have one parent, I wish you could've had your mom." For anyone who still thinks fatherhood is an easy job should try imagining a dad playing the role of both parents. You’ll see Hart in different scenes doing everything he can to be the best role model for his daughter Maddy.
Everyone tells him he can’t do it, they tell him his daughter needs a mother, his family asks him to move back home, and he’s also aware that he is a little lost most times about what to do.
For the most part, when Maddy was still an infant, Matt could hardly ever get any sleep; crying and wailing would wake him up even if he tried. It must have been such a tedious process raising her by himself through that stage, but Hart was determined to make it work. He knew it was difficult, and he wasn’t sure if he was any good at it, but he knew that he had to be.
Kevin Hart was also seen in one scene at a mother and child group looking for help because, according to the words right from his own mouth, he has no idea what he’s doing, and he happened to be the only male parent in the group.
We also see that he did make it through Maddy’s infancy when Melody Hurd makes her appearance, playing the grown-up child of Matthew Logelin. The movie is based on Two Kisses for Maddy: A Memoir of Loss & Love, a book written by Matthew Logelin.
The movie is a wonderful display of the depth of loss and how we live with tragedy. It also depicts the value of family and focuses on the bond between a father and his daughter.
The film is scheduled to be released on June 18, 2021, after it was rescheduled from April 2020, and it is coming just hours before Father’s Day, which is a great release period for a movie about Fatherhood.
