A Letter to Dad

 

Film Description:

A Letter to Dad – A film based on a true, touching story of how faith and love can overcome a lifetime of pain and anger. Dan Donahue (Thom Matthews) has finally met the woman of his dreams. But on the night he is going to propose, he is overcome by deep-rooted anger caused by the father who abandoned him as a boy.

Dan confronts his feelings of bitterness head on as he pours out his heart in a letter to his father. As Dan writes, we see his life unfold, feeling his pain and ultimate joy, as we watch him grow from young boy to troubled teen and finally into a strong, spiritual man.

In the end it is Dan’s father, played brilliantly by John Ashton who must face his own failures as a father in a climactic one on one meeting with the son he left behind.

    My review of this film:
    Talk about a major flashback. Half of this story takes place in the past as the hero has to consider that he might be like his father – and if so does not want to jeopardize ruining the life of his true love. Gritty and edgy scenes of teenage reality combined with the innocence of childhood and the naïveté of seekers of true love present an interesting contrast. An interesting confrontation between father and son put me through a emotional tug of war. It was evident that both parties were the victim of divorce. It was also very obvious that people can’t live in the past and dwell on prior hurts if they wish to lead productive and satisfying lives. The content was obviously not constructed to impress the Dove folks, since there are several scenes that will cause them to use their red pen, though there was nothing that caused me to throw a flag.
