One of the best family films I have seen in years...
31 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The description 'family film' gets tossed around a lot. I have found that either these so called family movies are either A) animated or B) still contain language, themes, etc that aren't exactly family friendly.

All Roads Lead Home is different. It is a wonderful film that manages to be sad, happy, funny, touching, and uplifting all at once. I won't go into to too many details as I don't want to ruin the story, but the message is simple, every living thing deserves a chance.

The movie also deals with death and dying which in my opinion is a positive. It shows that death is a part of life, it isn't glossed over but it also is shown morbidly or overly traumatic.

All in all it is a great film that I highly recommend...it will make you cry, make you laugh, make you think and most importantly if you watch it with children, make you talk. There are a ton of discussion topics that are dealt with in a positive way and I think that is both important and not something we see a lot of in 'family films.' See this movie.
