Deserves to be released on DVD
21 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think it is about time that this great movie be released on DVD I remember watching this movie like three times when I was a kid. I wish I could still find it. It is very good and Timothy Hutton is superb in this film about kids abandoned by their parents put up for adoption ultimately separated and the oldest sibling played by Hutton searches for his siblings. He finds them in the end very heart felt very emotional movie. When I first saw this movie I was just wow that was awesome I remember telling everyone I knew to see this movie. If anyone knows who owns the rights to this film please let them know there are fans of this movie that want to see it again.
