A deep, moving picture of a modern tragedy of an affair and effects on family.
This movie was a quiet picture of the great American tragedy where the affair of the man is played out in the lives of his family. Martin Sheen's family is torn when his son, from a visit to France is brought into the house. The family naturally turns against the father as he struggles to bring his 'son' into the house. The boy, who speaks only the basic English, faces both language and family difficulties. The daughters have the biggest, initially committing to running their new 'brother' off. It is a decidedly touching scene where the existing family turns off their defensiveness and embraces the love of the newly acquired son/brother.
