This was a wonderful, well-done movie!
21 May 1999 | by (So. California) – See all my reviews

This movie was a big surprise, in that it carried such emotional power and talent, and I had never even heard of it before! It takes the familiar tale of the Prodigal Son and fleshes it out into a modern, tragic, sometimes-funny story. This is no ordinary indie picture. I mean, the actors are incredible (who is this kid Brad Hunt and where has he been??), the movie looks great and (do I really dare say this?) it actually had me crying at the end. I love independent films and I've seen a lot, and Favorite Son, for me, is a step above most. We need more like it.
