After a series of sniggering sex comedies and dull adventure tales, TNT has come up with a solid drama in Rising Son. It’s a modernized version of ’50s ”kitchen sink” drama — the story of a middle-age man who loses his job and has a troubled relationship with his teenage son — but there’s nothing weepy or self-indulgent about Rising Son‘s intense emotionalism. Brian Dennehy plays Gus Robinson, a foreman in a Detroit auto factory.
