Strong Family Movie
26 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a VERY family friendly movie full of the kind of realism that is hard to make up. With flashbacks for most of the story, we are briefly introduced to characters who grew up poor during America's post-depression who marry and have a large family full of love, discipline and values that are rarely seen in movies today. Though most of the flashback falls somewhere in the late 1950's or 1960's, the daughter who narrates shows what her family life was like living in suburban Bakersfield, California. There are a few brief mentions of Christianity, but the way the family lived and breathed, their faith was evident. With this said, I didn't feel like this was a "Christian" movie, but a family movie because it was wholesome, real and came away feeling good!
