A beautiful film about letting go and moving forward
18 June 2016 | by (London, England.) – See all my reviews

A Country Called Home follows Ellie, A West Coast furniture designer who gets a call that informs her that her father has just died, she heads back to her hometown in Texas to deal with his death, she reconnects with her roots in ways she did not expect.

This film is very touching and relatable. It deals with themes of family and forgiveness. Ellie has stayed a distance from her father throughout most of her life due to his troubles with alcoholism, despite this, she goes back to Texas and reconnects with her family. She finds that in a way, she has let her father back into her heart. Regardless that town has still a dislike and his girlfriend struggling with alcoholism herself and causing trouble, she defends and still loves her father and does everything in her power to give him a proper goodbye. She also finally meets her grandparents and makes a new friend there, by the end of the film she has gained a new perspective on her life and is ready to move forward.

To me, the message of the film is that we all can overcome the trials and tribulations we face in life, as long as we have love in our hearts and focus on what really matters. Its very much a feel good film that will leave you feeling less alone in life. It's a beautiful indie film, not only because of the story but also the cinematography captures the beauty of Texas.
