Amazing cast of character actors ......
9 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Road Home" is a family movie with an amazing cast of character actors. Two orphaned brothers hit the rails for Nebraska, and Father Flanigan (Mickey Rooney) Boys Town. In pursuit is a detective (Charles Martin Smith). Along the way the boys are aided by a group of hobos, the leader being Danny Aiello. To cross the DesMoines River, Kris Kristofferson, secrets the two on his boat. With the orphan's exploits documented daily in National newspapers, they become folk heroes to the many downtrodden of "The Great Depression". If you like a good clean movie which both kids and adults can enjoy together, with lots of steam locomotives, then seek out this obscure VHS titled "The Road Home". - MERK
