A compelling drama that explores the different meanings of being a parent through the gritty, realistic lives of the struggling, blue-collar Porters, and the privileged Campbell family. Their lives intersect, intertwine and collide, all for the love of a little boy. This film bravely exposes the humanity in each character reminding us that we each have the potential to be the best and worst versions of ourselves at any time. Written by
The scene where Berry Pepper's character, Rip, is bitten by his dog was not part of the script until the dog decided to improvise it. Berry Pepper was actually bitten by his fellow actor, the dog. See more »
In the kitchen scene after Rip Porter smashes his empty bottle and gets consoled by Wendy, the positions of his head and of their hands around each other's heads change too suddenly between the subsequent shots while lines are being spoken across the cuts. See more »

One of the best movies with one of the most bizarre releases I've ever seen. In the Dallas area it is currently playing in one mall theater for only two shows a day, one in the morning and one in the early afternoon.
I can't comprehend how such a good movie gets so little theater distribution.
The six main characters are as multi-dimensional as fictional movie characters get. They act like real people would in real situations.
While there are a few times when the camera lingers too long for emotional effect, everything about this production is top rate.
If it is being shunned due to its Christian origins, that is a shame. The few references to Christianity are really only there to advance the plot.
I was a little surprised to realize at the end that I had just watched a great movie without any profanity or skin. It is still not a film for children because of its theme and some domestic violence.
If anybody knows, please post why this film is not enjoying wider distribution. This is a Blind Side caliber movie without near the preachiness.
