5.0 out of 5 stars Crossing The Bridge, March 26, 2011
This review is from: That Evening Sun (DVD)
Every one I know in a nursing dreams of and asks to be taken home. In the opening scene Hal Holbrook's charcter does just that.. packs his bag and just walks out the door with a plan to return to his farm where he'd lived most of his life. He ended up in the nursing home, we learn because he fell and broke his hip home aloneand no one found him for a few days. When he gets to his farm he finds it occupied by a dirt poor young couple and their teen age daughter and sets about trying to reclaim it. It tells a heart wrenching story about him, his grieving for his wife, his relationship with his son and the family who are living in his house in a non emotional unmanipulative way. The core background story is a bridge we all have to cross first with our own aging parents and later ourselves as aging people no longer able to live safely at home. Showing us the mis steps along the way for this father and son allows us to consider it all as it relates to our own lives..to the bridge we cannot avoid crossing with our parents and eventually ourselves. Hal Holbrook of course is brilliant and absolutely perfect for the role.
