Watching this movie was like visiting old friends that one sees on the holidays or goes on vacations with. I simply loved this movie and all of the little quirks in each of the characters: Mag's classical music stress relievers, Patrick's blindness, Alfred's compulsive neatness, Izzy's annoying observations, Percival's rebelliousness, Gideon's guilt, Merle's and Darren's twinness, and finally, Simon's hair. The fact that each character has something different about him or herself shows that this "dysfunctional" American family is just about as normal a family as I've ever met. One of the best qualities of this movie is that the issues and the family roles that are portrayed by and between each character are very realistic. My mother and I, as we watched the film, could relate to many of the scenes. My mother continually nodded her head as Mag went from scene to scene with a motherly presence so dominating it simply defined her as the representation of every mothers' unconditional love. My favorite moments in the movie occurred between Mag and her youngest son, Simon. Right from the get-go, there is just some unexplainable bond between the two of them that permeates the screen when only the two are involved, even when they scream at each other. Their relationship is a very special one that I can relate to. Izzy's devoted relationship to his father is one that I can relate to as well. Considering this family as "dysfunctional" is like considering the Pope a Hindu, which brings me to my next best quality about the movie. I love the relationships in the film and the honesty that each character shares with one another.Read more ›

This is one of my favorite movies. As a 40 year male with no children I don't think I'll ever be able to get closer to understanding the feeling a mother has about her children than when I watched this moovie. Great ensemble cast. You'll defiantly laugh and cry in this movie. Sarandon and Shepard were great. I don't know the name of any of the children but it included the guy from swing kids and the guy from Mall Rats. The kid that figured out teh alergy situation has been around to and they all do a good job. Lots of realism in Surandans neurosis. There is a great piece of acting by the actress who played the wife of the "swing kids guy" in the kitchen scene with Sarandon. I call it the tequila and meatloaf sceen. That's the best scene in the movie mostly due to some dynamite dialogue. Other great scenes include the scene at the creek, the post dog attack, the fire in the driveway scene, the reporter confrentation, and the morning bunk bed sceen when the young kid says today's the day we'll find out.

I thought that Susan Sarndon's character was incerdibly moving as well as Sam Shepard,Sean Aston and of course the young actor that always has my respect, Nick Stahl.A movie about family closeness and not missing a thing.

I liked this movie a lot. It was very intresting to see into the workings of a big family and how even though they all had their own lives, they were still connected and were able to pull together in the middle of potential crisis.

The mom, Mrs. SInger (played by Susan Surandon! yay!) seemed a little like my own mother in that I could see her sometimes getting intuition* feelings ar dreams about them, and silently worrying and wondering.

This was a very believable movie to me. Not everyone will like it and they might think it is boring. But I liked it very uch and thought it was honest.

To me I never caught where any gay scene were really in it to cause it to be a gay interest movie?
To me it was mainly a movie about one of the kids that goes off to fight and not know if he makes it home or not till the end.
You can watch that right now on TV for free I should have really saved my money.
There may have been some ok parts in it but really to much drama between the brothers.

I have this movie on VCR but now needed it one DVD to enjoy more memories with ever passing year. I would suggest all parents watch this movie--Susan Sarandon was a wonderful mother and raised wonderful sons. Not a good movie to watch if you have children still at home as it is not funny to watch when you living the movie--but when the house is empty everything seems a little more humorous.

Great movie about the emotional turmoil a family goes through while they wait for word about one of the sons who is in the service and who they believe was in a building that was bombed. Wonderful cast and very touching movie.

Safe Passages is an extremely engaging film of a family in the process of change. Susan Sarondon and Sam Shepherd play the parents of seven sons. All except one are now raised and out of the house. Sarandon having been a Mom since 19 is now in crisis; the realization of the energy she has spent raising her sons -- at the personal cost of any career or work is a challenging crossroads for her. We find her resentful of her children on one hand for having kept her away from career and frightened on the other hand of what to do with her life now that her sons are raised. She is completely uncertain that she can start a career at this point in her life.The entire family is summoned upon learning that one of the boys may have been killed in a terrorist bombing upon the Marie barracks he was assigned to. While clearly emergent, the family finds itself coming together only to be stuck together in wait -- the endless process of identifying who has died and who the survivors are is a careful and lengthy bureaucratic process. In the waiting together, the family is on one hand frightened at the prospect of the news they are waiting for while at the same time unintentionally re-examining their lives as a family unit. It is obvious by the kids' assessment of their Mom that she was a tremendous one. They are each extremely well grounded -- with the exception of the youngest who is still home caught in the midst of Mom and Dad's empty-nest crisis -- and have wonderful recollections of a strong loviing woman and a very involved father who reared them. The dad is the less dominant of the couple but he was very clearly involved in the loving care of raising his sons, although more involved with the two boys who were runners who shared his common interest in running.Read more ›
