A Wonderful Way to Spend an Evening
30 January 2009 | by df7881See all my reviews

Posted by Mike Fry

This evening, I had the privilege of seeing a private screening of a film titled "All Roads Lead Home". The movie is a must-see for anyone who feels a connection to nonhuman life forms. It could be the most powerful animal-themed film I have seen. It features a stellar cast and a story beautifully told. Those who may shy away from a movie labeled as a "family film" will appreciate the boldness with which "All Roads Lead Home" tackles tough issues. Be clear: This film is perfectly acceptable for all members of the family. However, it is far from the cliché, formulaic sorts of "family films" one might associate with that genre. All Roads Lead Home has already begun racking up some pretty nice awards, including one for Best Feature Drama at the International Family Film Festival. It also got kudos at the Palm Beach International Film Festival and the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. In some ways, these last two mentions are extra remarkable, because family films are not typically the kinds of films that do well at film festivals. The success of THIS "family film" at these international film festivals is a testament to the broad range of appeal "All Roads Lead Home" has. Put it on your "must-see" list.
