Kirby Bliss Blanton,
Cadon wasn't going anywhere . . . until he met Jess. Now that Jess and her young son Austin are living with him, his life seems to have direction and purpose. But when they lose custody of Austin under questionable circumstances, Cadon feels responsible. Desperate to keep Jess, Cadon turns to his lifelong friend Bo for help to reclaim their son. As their plan unfolds and tensions escalate, Cadon finds himself trapped in a hostage crisis in a small church. With the situation spiraling out of control, Cadon, Jess and Bo will each have life-changing decisions to make. MY SON tells the story behind a too-real tragedy interwoven with a message of hope that can overcome even our worst choices. Written by
My Son is a film that is part of a growing number of faith based movies that have begun to flood the market. Some of these films are very strong in their messages yet lack the quality of a cinematic masterpiece. Jarod O'Flaherty's film comes pretty close and definitely is worth taking a look at despite it's "R" rating from the MPAA.
My Son is a story about a family that was torn apart when a court ordered their son to be taken away. Devastated by the decision, Cadon, the boy's father, takes drastic measures to reunite the family that he cherished dearly.
As part of the growing movement of Christian films, My Son stands out due to it's realistic feel and grittiness that brings modern interpretations to life. Although it still contains many teachings of the Christian faith, it does not paint them in a pretty picture that is easily spoon-fed to audiences. You will experience the hurtful emotions, drug use, and violence that encapsulates this family and their world. It is not "perfect" as most films seem to be and the light at the end of the tunnel is not so easily obtained. The cinematography is raw; although filmed with a skilled hand, there are places where certain effects like the shaky hand camera, work for this film. The acting is above average for films of this genre; Restin Burke reminds me of a young Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers). There is a considerable amount of action in this film and nothing is left to chance. Even the antagonist played by Micheal Willbanks added to the chemistry of this not so ordinary film.
One of the great things about this film is that it tries to look like a mainstream action film and you would believe that this would be shown in indie theaters. Also the R rating is not deserved compared to such films as Passion of the Christ, My Son does not achieve such horrific violence or shock value. My Son is a movie worth watching from this independent production company.
