Review of The Evolution of Dad Film
Library Journal 

Filmmaker Glazer here explores the evolving role of fathers in modern America. He opens with an emotional photo collage featuring fathers, accompanied by voice-overs from their children. He then pieces together on-camera interview excerpts from experts, wives, children, and fathers to explain the dilemma that men face in choosing between working to support or being with their children and how the absence of fathers affects the child. He shows how being a stay-at-home dad conflicts with the male stereotype of providing for one’s family by going to a job. The nontraditional fathers profiled here discuss the problems they have faced, for example, a lack of paid-parental leave and not being taken seriously at work. The fathers, including Glazer himself, are eloquent in voicing what fatherhood means to them. Glazer’s heartfelt effort to illuminate workplace and gender issues relating to fatherhood will prove insightful to academic audiences and resonate with fathers everywhere.

“The film is exceptional in that it’s taken on a widespread change in our society that’s gotten little attention and handles it well. For that, it’s *recommended* for all academic and public libraries.”

Movie Review: The Evolution of Dad
Katherine Lewis”Perhaps if enough voices like Dana Glazer continue to question conventional stereotypes, we as a society will finally live up to the values we say we want: involved parents, equality at home and at work, and a truly democratic society where anyone can achieve both a successful career and satisfaction as an engaged parent.”

“If you are a new father, you should see this movie. If you are a veteran father, you should see this movie. Actually, if you are a parent you should see this movie. See how things are changing and how far we still have to go. But the point is that things are changing. Thank God!”

“While women’s evolution from the home to the office is well-documented, men’s evolution from the board room to the family room is less known or appreciated. This film will change that.”
