Storyline

Memoir of the lives of a family growing up on a post World War I British estate headed up by a strong disciplinarian, her daughter, her inventor husband, their ten year old son, and his older sister. Through the household comes a number of suitors hoping to impress the young woman, including an aviator. When the elder woman's son shows up at the estate with his French fiancé, everything gets thrown into turmoil. The young boy takes a sudden interest in her sexual allure and his father is disturbed by his own non-Victorian feelings. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

While Fraser at age 3 crawls out of his bedroom onto the roof, his older brother, young Rollo in short pants with suspenders (in a shot from behind at 02:27), is on the lawn holding a tennis racket, but (at around 28 mins) the scene cuts to a frontal shot where young Rollo's hands are empty. Later (at around 33 mins), he holds the tennis racket again. See more »

A gem
9 October 2004 | by (London, Ontario) – See all my reviews

It is rare to see a sweet and lovely movie but this is one ... a great way to spend the afternoon. A nice family story, although with really young kids you might have to explain some of the things "Wee Fraser" discovers up in his Grampa's attic. (Should you find your attention wandering and this not being your kind of movie, just fast-forward to the dinner scene and the very final scene: those two scenes should go down in movie history as the most adorable ever made!

(A Family Dinners will never be the same when you consider a little bit of knowledge gets a little out of hand --- and maybe dad does know best!)
