Four Men. Two Families. One Story.
DVD Release Date – May 29, 2012
“Fathers” is the story of two single fathers and their sons. Rick Tarinno, lost his wife in a tragic car accident 3 years ago. Ever since the accident, Rick has blamed God for everything, from the death of his wife to the living hell that his life has turned into. He turned to a life of abuse and drinking to try to drown his sorrows.
Michael Campbell, is approaching the three year anniversary of the abandonment of his wife and subsequent divorce. The night she left was the same night as Rick’s accident. Mike is a blue-collar guy that really had to learn to be a parent after the divorce. He turned to his church family and friends for support and help and they led him to God, his ultimate helper.
Rick’s son, Lucas, and Michael’s son, Raymond, have known each other most of their lives. Since the death of Lucas’ mom, things haven’t really been the same. Lucas has been the victim of his fathers’ abuse and has turned to a new group of friends for the attention that he isn’t getting at home. Raymond, the star point guard on the high school basketball team, has been trying to maintain their friendship, but can do nothing but watch as his lifelong friend slips lower and lower.
Rick’s lack of faith, Michael’s commitment to God, and Raymond’s longing for his old friend will all be put to the test when Lucas is put in the toughest situation of his young life and Raymond is forced to fight for his. Only then will the truth be sought and hopefully found, before it’s too late.
“Fathers” is an exciting adventure into the spiritual journey of four men searching for their place in the world.
I liked the beginning comparison of a Father and son playing ball to our relationship with our Heavenly Father. That was excellent. You have to hear it to understand.
This film really brings out the Gospel, showing how someone lives the life of Christianity and how their lives touch other lives that ultimately leads to their conversion experience. I’ve heard it said that the strongest witness a person can have is in their daily lives. Walking the talk!
This film also brings out a real contrast to a Christian father/son relationship to a Non-Christian father/son. I do not believe they were trying to bring out that non-Christian father/son relationships are all this bad, because we know that’s not true, but there are a LOT of them that truly are.
The ending of this film was unexpected and not predictable. I stopped the film and asked Roger what he thought was going to happen in the end. We both thought one thing and it DID NOT happen. That’s a good thing. Films can be quite predictable pretty much all the way through. Glad this wasn’t one of them.
You can still catch this film for “Father’s Day”! I have to admit the one relationship of father/son was definitely desirable.
