Interesting film about child custody
7 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Based on the book by the same name, Mark, I Love You is about a young widower's battle for custody of his son Mark. After the death of his young wife, Hal Painter allowed his in-laws to care for his son for a time, but they refused to return the child to him when he had settled into his new home. Because he was not only a single man, but something of a hippie, Painter's in-laws felt that they had a plausible case for keeping Mark-- and at the time, they did. The actors in this small, serious film do a good job and avoid "movie of the week" histrionics, despite the emotional subject matter. An interesting look into old prejudices concerning child custody and family ties.
