Shows how divorce affects the family
18 July 2010 | by ajoffroySee all my reviews

This is a family drama about a boy named Dan who writes a letter to his dad when he's in his mid twenties. We see his life done in flashbacks through the letter. Although slow at times, the performances were good. Especially John Ashton (Beverly Hills Cop) Mario Van Peebles and Corin Nemec, who played the teenage version of Dan. The movie has a nice score supported by songs from Christian performers, Jeremy and Thousand Foot Krutch. I noticed that the movie did receive 5 Doves from The Dove Foundation, their highest rating. The movie is a tear jerker and a little over the top at times but I recommend this movie to anyone who's gone through a divorce.
