  • Sentiment was lost on the British censors, who slapped Our Mother’s House with an “X certificate,” the rough equivalent of our R rating today. Home Alone it’s not, nor is it an exploitation flick, despite seamy goings-on that divide children forced into adulthood and a father who refuses to accept adult responsibilities. The clash of worlds is sharply, yet delicately, observed, and the Warner Archive’s rescue of a film as neglected as its setting is welcome.
