An excellent film with broad appeal.
4 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was fortunate enough to see this film recently at the Newport Beach Film Festival. The theater was almost filled to capacity even though it was shown on a late Sunday evening. Fans of Mr. Dallas had written glowing reviews of his performance and I was anxious to see it for myself. My expectations were high and, I am very happy to say, they were fully met by this wonderful film. It is a moving story of a broken relationship between a father and son. The use of an Indian motorcycle to help mend that relationship was identifiable with both genders viewing the film. The cast of seasoned veteran actors along with up and coming young stars also lend to the broad appeal of the film. The moving story brought me to tears with it's conclusion. I left the theater knowing I had just seen that rare film that touches all that see it. It was well worth the 1400 miles I traveled from my home to the NBFF. I would do it again tomorrow to see this film. I hope that someone will pick up this film for national distribution so that others can have a chance to share in this experience.
