Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Mr. Estevez is both writer and director of this film, and also turns up in a small role, but he gives the spotlight to his father, who makes quite a lot out of a low-key story that could easily have degenerated into mush.
Fresh: Open yourself up to this thoughtful, moving personal adventure and you're in for a uniquely memorable experience.
Rotten: The father-son dynamic is played just right, Tom's sightings of his deceased son arriving at key moments. If only that resonance carried into the rest of the story's episodic progression.
Fresh: Estevez does embrace the spiritual and religious elements of his movie. But he's as interested in the journey as the destination.
Very inspiring !
This is a good film that gets you to look at your purpose....
The film is good. It is worth the watch. THIS IS NOT A ACTION FILM. The four characters who take a journey togetther for different reasons are ALL acted out extremly well which makes the film, entertaining, funny, sad, serious and in the end insperational. Live a life don't pick one.
What a great flick. Makes you really take an inner look.
