We see Steven Sorrell work in any job he is lucky enough to find to earn the money to give his son a start. Of course a little poetic license is used but it in no way affects the telling of the tale. The hotel he finds himself in becomes his home and the staff his family. The owner goes of and leaves Sorrell in charge but he is also a very compassionate man that helps Sorrell find the right path for him and his son. The wife pops up here and there but she is never made to feel comfortable and quickly fades into the background.
One review said too many bedroom scenes but they are so well done and over with that I really did not think it affected the story as a whole. Kit, the son, is given every start his father can come by and ends up as a wonderful, compassionate surgeon who marries a beautiful girl who in turn has made her money via writing and owning a dress shop. A very diverse person but with an interesting deep ability to see into people.
Well written and acted and a good look into the early 20 centuary way of life. Sure not to disappoint.
The personal trials of the father are messed together with the development of the son in such a way that the interplay shows the gradual progression of boy to man and from father to friend and guide in life.
The family situations ring very true, even for a period drama, and audiences will not have a hard time relating to these characters.
I don't recall anything being to adult themed that would make this film off limits to teens and should be a good view for al audiences.
