Bring out the tissue box for you will need it in the end. It is a true story about a man [played by Donald Sutherland] who spent his whole life caught up in his work, neglected his relationship with his wife and forgot to be a father to his son. One day he has a rude awakening and the journey begins as he tries to regain what he lost by helping a mentally challeged Christian man in his employ find his lost father. Good movie on how God works behind the scenes in our lives without even knowing it. It keeps you wondering how it will turn out in the end.

Splendid film! It radiates compassion and goodwill. The sheer acting abilities of the cast held my attention and lift this Canadian-produced film from the good to the top-notch.

Donald Sutherland portrays Dr. Robert Shushan, the director of an institute which employs the mentally handicapped in fulfilling orders to commercial sellers (packing boxes, assembling). Somewhere along the way he's left his hands-on idealism behind and become enmeshed in red-tape and bureacracy, neglecting his wife and son in the process. A crisis with his health and a fortuitous meeting with the interesting and eccentric James Jones sets him back on track.

This is a true story; the screenplay was written by the real Shushan and Jones. It's moving and worth watching more than once.

The movie was very good with Sutherland and Fox doing excellent work. Fox was a new name to me as I had not heard of him before Lost. Sutherland is always good. The storyline was not what I expected and I was pleasantly surprised.

This is a great heartwarming movie that just tugs at your heart. Though I felt that the acting, roles and the scenes are all excellent, I felt that parts of the plot tends to take a bit of a flair for the dramatic. For the most part, the movie was great with the moving story of a father who befriends a man that saves his life, realizing in the end that he missed out on the most important thing in his life: his son. Be prepared to cry as there are tons of tear-jerker scenes! I'm glad to have gotten a copy of it. If you haven't, get yours today. This is a movie that you have to see at least once!

We found this movie very uplifting and inspiring. The story is about the head of a center where mentally and emotionally challenged individuals produce and ship products. The focus of the story is on his relationship with one young man (James)who wants others to respect him.The developing relationship challenges both men and brings them to a place of healing and resolution between James and his father and the head of the center and his own estranged son. The acting is riveting and very satisfying. It is not a children's movie, but involves a deep theme about the value of a father, no matter who he is or how much water has gone under the bridge.

This movie is true! I love truth, bios, docs and such. The movie is kind of a rollercoaster ride. It's sad, uplifting, angry, resentful by son and wife. I'm happy to say, it ends like you want it to, but will still brings tears to your eyes, more than once. It is a beautiful, hearfelt movie and so well done.

Dr. Robert Shushan (Donald Sutherland) is a workaholic leader of a clinic helping and giving useful work to mentally handicapped and developmentally disabled adults. His overwork leads to a heart attack. Shushan's reaction to a heart condition and work is typical--I know--I lived through it myself. Sutherland does a masterful work in displaying the emotion and drive, as well as a new look at life and what is important for a heart attack survivor. He must have had a real heart attack, or he talked to some men that did. Of course he was likely coached by one of the writers, the real Dr. Shushan.

His new lease on life awakens him to a need to get closer to his son Brian (Bradley Whitford) who, after years of a civil relationship, questions the need or desire for more of the emotional and loving kinship.

Unfortunately, during the heart episode's recovery time, the board of the clinic developed by Dr. Shushan has decided he needs to step down. Shushan takes one desperate stab at making a difference before he must leave. A mentally handicapped client and maintenance worker, James (Matthew Fox) becomes Shushan's focus. James had initially saved Shushan by being at the scene of the heart attack and responding appropriately. Shushan's enhanced effort to help this young man, lead to an attempt to find his father. James one great need/wish is to find his father, and that this father be proud of him. What an amazing portral of this young man who begins to see the doctor as his father.

Of course, the father is found. That is no surprise. It really happened. It is the reaction to the situation by all four, 2 sons and 2 fathers, that makes the ending. Powerful drama, and knowing it was real, makes the emotional adventure of this DVD all the better.
