HOME The Movie ....a must own movie.
2 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Home The Movie is a MUST see !! I love this movie ! I couldn't wait to get a DVD copy so that I could go home, cook up corned beef and cabbage,share both the movie and meal with my entire family, and CELEBRATE our Irish heritage . :) The movie caused me to think of my ancestors and the struggles they had in order to come to this country. They saw a future for their descendants, and NYC was their place to start the journey "home ". There is a much bigger appreciation in my heart to those who where brave enough and wise enough to make that decision. Home The Movie is a tug on anyones heart no matter what part of this giant globe your family has immigrated from. Watch the movie and then celebrate YOUR heritage !!! Hats off to Dawn Scibilia and Allen Cooke !!!!!
