This movie exemplifies the American dream of the familial bond. The movie depicts the dream of the reality of how life is, where the parent controls the child and believes that the child wants to do a certain hobby because it is what the parent did, or wished to do.
The child then doesn't want to do what the parent forces the child to do, and then decides to go against the family and do what they want. Then the child becomes great at the hobby and the parents have a turn around after disagreeing and not supporting the child because of the whole disconnect that occurs when a child decides to do what they want for their own life.
The Parent then becomes involved in the Childs life, and they bond over the "death" of the broken dream of the parent, and apologizes for the disrespect and the mistreatment of the child, and begins to support the child in what they want to do. The parent becomes very remorseful to the child to ensure that the child is still apart of the parents life.
The reality life reality and the film, are completely opposite. The film depicts the dream of how life is to be with a family, and their children. It's the typical cliche "prophecy" or "calling" for a lack of better way to describe it. And this calling, is a straight up reality check for the parent because of how distant the child would be, and how much involvement the parent would have their child in their life, and how much involvement, control, and influence the parent will have in their Childs life. The parent doesn't want to be a stranger and be kicked out of the child's life because it will evidently hurt the parent, and the parent will have a spiral down turn, and eventually become very sickly; more so sickly, abusive, and/or psychotic
Great movie. Need more of these types of movies. Not the whole Prostitution of Hollywood films.
