"True" story about man's battle for custody of his son.
21 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This made for TV movie is about my family, so I am biased. (If it weren't I would have forgotten it by now.) Mark is my cousin, and the grandparents portrayed in the movie were my grandparents. I hate how they are portrayed as cold and stereotypical Midwestern hicks. In fact, my grandfather was the editor of a newspaper and my grandmother had a degree from Grinnell. I never saw her without nylons, much less in a house-dress. I agree that the judge in the case who assigned custody based on "lifestyle" was out of line. Having a Made-for-TV movie made about people I know and love shows me first hand how simplistic these things are and how much they rely on stereotypes and soundtracks to tell their story. The story told from my Grandmother's perspective could have made a wonderful film, but I am sure if it had been a TV movie (or a Lifetime production) it would have been stupid as well.
