My son's name sake
5 April 2014 | by (leigh-on-sea, essex England) – See all my reviews

I was 21 and had been married for two years when I gave birth to our first son. I had really wanted a boy so was over the moon. However two weeks after his birth we could still not agree on a name. But leaving our beautiful contented little baby with his so doting grandparents we thought a night out at the cinema to watch this would be well deserved. And so as the film began I thought this guy looks so like my husband and his free spirit so matched mine that I whispered to Kim, my husband " I love this boys name and his spirit. What about naming our son Robin?" So by the end of the film our son had his name. So as my son is having his 40th birthday this October I would so love to buy a DVD of this film to give him as I know he will be as moved as I was. Is this possible?
