The story of how a kid dances his way from London's West End all the way to Hollywood and overtakes his 'celebrity' dad on his way.
Dominic Holland is this 'celebrity' dad - a professional stand-up comedian and author, still beavering away at becoming famous himself but now accepting at being completely Eclipsed by his eldest son, Tom Holland, better known as the new Peter Parker, better known as Spider-Man in the forthcoming movie, Homecoming.
A remarkable story anyway but even more so, when considered that this whole thing has been a fluke. No master plan at play here. No pushy parents or expensive drama schools. Not even any drama lessons. In fact, when this kid took to the stage in London's West End to play the signature role in Billy Elliot the Musical, he had never even had a speaking part in a school play before.
"Eclipsed" is an extraordinary true story and hilarious when set against the best endeavours of his old man.
Written with great affection and warmth by a dad who is proud and bemused in equal measure, Eclipsed is a thrilling show-biz expose, chronicling the diverging lives of father and son. We all want the best for our children. Ideally, they will outperform the achievements of their forebears. But in the same business as the dad and before they even hit their teens? Come on, really?
