For anyone looking for a "feel good" movie, this one shouldn't be missed!
Another child whose character is richly developed in the film is middle son Murray. Indoor plumbing becomes his goal in life!
Most viewers will probably be very frustrated at the mother's refusal to "take charity" even when her children suffer-- the Christmas scene is especially heartbreaking. I would not spoil the final fourth of the film for you-- but will simply say that it is believable. In fact, the entire story is supposed to be a true one, as stated by Shayne, who narrates these realistic events set in 1962.
In this independent film Frances Lacey is a widow trying to survive in the man's world of the 1960s. With three boys and three girls, ranging in age from four to fifteen, her task is even harder. Shayne, the eldest, has become the man of the house, albeit begrudgingly. When he talks out of turn he dutifully gets his father's belt and takes his punishment while Lynn, Faye, Murray, Annie and Craig look on.
Frances is a strong persuasive woman who stands up for herself and her children. After being fired from a Los Angeles potato chip factory for standing up to sexual harassment Frances decides, without discussion, to find something better. She sells whatever she can and packs everything else, along with the kids, into their rusty old Plymouth and starts driving.
They end up in rural Idaho sitting in the car outside a dilapidated half built frame house. It's love at first sight for Frances. In exchange for what Frances calls slave labour she makes an exchange with the owner and neighbour, Mr. Moon, for the property and house. He agrees hesitantly and totally unaware of the changes that are going to occur in his life.
For a regular income she talks the local bowling alley owner into hiring her even though she has no experience. She's willing to work and willing to learn. She passes her good work ethics onto her children who also work to earn money to help finish the house. Their only real home since their father died.
A Home of Our Own is an adult film with adult content and narrated by Shayne who looks back to when he was 15 years old. He calls his mother "one of a kind" and she certainly is.Read more ›
That fool that gave this movie only 1 star, and compared it to Anacondas obviously did not watch the movie. Just goes to show you that no matter how perfect something is, there is always one idiot who wants to tear it down.
