"Witt's Daughter" is a timeless tale of expectations vs. reality. When stiff-necked Army Lieutenant, Witt Stringfield returns from the Korean War with the picture in his mind of home as he left it three years before- he gets a rude awakening. His three-year-old daughter, Catherine May, treats him as an unwelcome stranger. Witt's left alone with her on his first night home, and the young father who's used to commanding situations, butts heads with his adorable little girl as he attempts to force her to love him. How he wins his last skirmish of the Korean War makes for a compelling and thoughtful story in this sweet tale of love, expectations and how the simplest act can bond two hearts for a lifetime. Written by Carole Holliday

Heartwarming and touching film.
8 May 2010 | by odelia18See all my reviews

Witt's Daughter, is a touching piece of art. Articulate in its' writing, and directed in a style that flows naturally. Although the stage is set in post Korean-war America, it is easy to relate to any time a soldier returns to his home after serving his country. The main character struggles with trying to pick up where he left off, but finds it difficult after returning home from active duty. War effects everyone; the people who go off to fight, and the families they leave behind. This film eloquently captures both sides of the coin.

Nothing stays the same when someone leaves to serve their country. Life goes on while they are away. Ironically, while someone is separated from their loved ones, they tend to desperately cling to an image of life, as it was before they left. They are also changed by the experiences of war. This film captures the essence of this experience, and how everyone is affected as a result. The film also serves as a reminder that even the life of a small child is changed when adults are sent off to do the bidding of the powers in charge of a country. Overall, a very well done picture.
