The film represents a version of events that makes the experience of being around my dad look anarchic and chaotic, but I actually had a stable upbringing with my mum. We lived in a country house, she made apple pie – it was a nice, middle-class upbringing. Even when I went to live with my dad when I was older, I never felt as though I was in any danger. The thing is that films of this kind tend to promote the extremes, by which the perception of someone gets cemented. Some people seem to think that my dad was a genius and others say he was evil. He wasn't evil, he was annoying. But he was also a lovely, bubbly person, a normal dad who made me soup.
How would I describe my dad? Someone made a brilliant analogy that I think sums him up: he was like a beautifully made hotel, one side of which looks over an idyllic beach while the other looks over the Gaza strip
