The film at times uses double voice-over narration, when the audience hears both Will's and Marcus's thoughts. The film was theatrically released on 26 April by Universal Pictures.
It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay. Actors Hugh Grant and Toni Collette were nominated for a Golden Globe and a BAFTA Award , respectively, for their performances.
Will Freeman  lives a serene and luxurious lifestyle devoid of responsibility in London thanks to substantial royalties left to him from a successful Christmas song composed by his father.
In an attempt to meet single women with children who Will believes have low expectations in the men they date , Will begins attending a single parent support group, "SPAT", where he falsely states that he has a two-year-old son named Ned.
He meets an attractive woman named Suzie in the group, and during a planned play-date with her, he meets Marcus, the 12 year old son of Suzie's friend Fiona, who was unexpectedly brought along by Suzie.
Will gains Marcus's interest and trust after he lies to a park ranger to cover up for Marcus accidentally killing a duck by throwing his mother's home-made cottage loaf at it.
Afterward, when Will and Suzie take Marcus home, they find Fiona in the living room, overdosed on pills from a suicide attempt.
Marcus attempts to fix Will up with his mother in order to cheer her up, but the plan fails after a single date.
Instead, Marcus becomes close to Will after blackmailing him with the knowledge that "Ned" doesn't exist, and begins to treat him as a surrogate big brother.
Marcus's influence leads Will to mature and he seeks out a relationship with Rachel, a self-assured career woman, bonding over their experiences raising teenage sons, though Will neglects to explain his relationship to Marcus.
He introduces Marcus to Rachel's insecure son, Ali, who threatens to kill him. Marcus, in turn, develops a crush on a girl named Ellie, a punk rocker at his school, but they instead develop a close platonic friendship.
Will, realizing that he desires true intimacy with Rachel, decides to be honest with her about his relationship with Marcus, but this backfires and their relationship ends.
One day, Marcus comes home from school to find his mother crying in the living room. He attempts to tell this to Will, but Will is withdrawn following his break-up.
Marcus decides to sing at a school talent show in order to make his mother happy. Will attempts to return to his previous lifestyle, but finds it unfulfilling.
He realizes that the one thing that means something to him is Marcus, and decides to help him. Will slowly begins to realize that Marcus is more than just a nuisance, but rather someone who needs some guidance navigating through the trials of adolescence and the trials of dealing with a suicidal mother, and perhaps he can be a small part of providing that direction.
Conversely, Marcus may be able to show Will the path to becoming a real adult. Will Freeman is a hip Londoner who one day realizes that his friends are all involved with the responsibilities of married life and that leaves him alone in the cold.
Passing himself off as a single father, he starts to meet a string of single mums, confident in his ability to leave them behind when they start to ask for a commitment.
But Will's hope of a continued bachelorhood is interrupted when he meets year old Marcus, in many ways his complete opposite. In the book got a movie adaptation of the same name, directed by the brothers Weitz.
The movie got good reviews, and it raised the popularity of the book. Marcus is a twelve years old boy that had just moved to London with his mother, Fiona.
She is divorced, trying to recover. Marcus has problems with fitting into the new school. Will is a mature 36 years old man that acts like a teenager.
He is a womanizer, and he went to a support group for single parents hoping to find women he could date there. He met Suzie that told him about her son Ned.
Marcus came home from school that day and found his mother in bad condition. In the meeting Will told an invented story about his imaginary son and when Marcus and Suzie came home they found Fiona that tried to kill herself and they took her to the emergency room.
She recovered physically but Suzie thought she could use somebody to share her problems with and start a family so she tries to convince Will and Fiona to go on a date.
Will does not fancy Fiona so he goes back to his old life until one day Marcus came knocking at his door because he was scared Fiona will hurt herself again.
Marcus starts visiting Will after school. Added to Watchlist. From metacritic. The Rise of Daniel Kaluuya. When I First Saw Myself Reflected on Screen.

Edit Cast Cast overview, first billed only: Hugh Grant Will Freeman Nicholas Hoult Marcus Brewer Sharon Small Christine Madison Cook Imogen Jordan Cook Imogen Nicholas Hutchison John Ryan Speechley Barney Joseph Speechley Barney Toni Collette The heart of the movie involves the relationship between Will and Marcus--who begins by shadowing Will, finds out there is no "Ned," and ends by coming over on a regular basis to watch TV.
Will has had nothing but trouble with his fictional child, and now finds that a real child is an unwieldy addition to the bachelor life.
Nor is Fiona a dating possibility. Marcus tried fixing them up, but they're obviously not intended for each another--not Will with his cool bachelor aura and Fiona with her Goodwill hippie look and her "health bread," which is so inedible that little Marcus barely has the strength to tear a bite from the loaf.
There is an unfortunate incident in the park when Marcus attempts to throw the loaf into a pond to feed the ducks, and kills one. Will finds to his horror that authentic emotions are forming.
He likes Marcus. He doesn't admit this for a long time, but he's a good enough bloke to buy Marcus a pair of trendy sneakers, and to advise Fiona that since Marcus is already mocked at school, it is a bad idea, by definition, for him to sing "Killing Me Softly" at a school assembly.
Meanwhile, Will starts dating Rachel Rachel Weisz , who turns out to be a much nicer woman than he deserves she also has a son much nastier than she deserves.
This plot outline, as it stands, could supply the materials for a film of complacent stupidity--a formula sitcom with one of the Culkin offspring blinking cutely.
It is much more than that; it's one of the year's most entertaining films, not only because Grant is so good but because young Nicholas Hoult has a kind of appeal that cannot be faked.
He isn't a conventionally cute movie child, seems old beyond his years, can never be caught in an inauthentic moment, and helps us understand why Will likes him--he likes Marcus because Marcus is so clearly in need of being liked, and so deserving of it.
