The first section features Anthony and Jenny and traces the father-son bond that develops between Anthony and his newborn son over 30 years. The second story centers on the affairs of an airline pilot who shares a house but not a life with his wife. He crosses paths with an unusual woman and spends an extraordinary night with his son. The final chapter follows the homecoming of Elliot to his estranged family. As his father dies, Elliot meets and falls in love with a woman who sees past his tough-guy exterior. Written by someone

Don't bother

I think filmmakers need to stop putting their family dysfunction on screen and find other topics to make movies about. And for god's sake learn proper English.

The acting is stilted. The story a retread. And certain actors are so far outside their comfort range it's obviously difficult for them to get through this. The break up of the stories feels contrived as well.

This would have played better if we'd been given at least one scene tying the families together in the early part of the story.

This is almost two hours I could have spent watching paint dry. Or re-watching something like It Runs in the Family.

Can't Gale find any decent roles to play? At this rate the guy will never have a decent career.
