Customer Review

on December 4, 2004
I am a member of Robert Tyre Jones's family. We had no financial investment whatsoever in this film. The producers and writers were kind enough to ask for our input about some of the family background for the picture. As for the borderline alchoholism........ where'd you get that? Because he drank along with everyone else in the movie that puts him in line for the Big Book? I think you may have jumped to a conclusion that is not supported.

Now, as for the movie, the strongest critics have probably been our family. We very much liked the movie, the cast was top notch, the music by James Horner was superb, the scenery and costumes were meticulously in period. Mr. Jones did not lead a flamboyant life, he was an extremely well educated southern gentleman, he was a family man.Naturally this will make for a sedate and well mannered yet entertaining film. It would have been inappropriate to add sex and car jackings in there for ratings. He was given the Freedom of the City of St. Andrews, Scotland in 1957, the only other American to have recieved this honor was Benjamin Franklin. I give this movie a 2 thumbs up. Box office does not make a movie good a movie stands on it's own merit. I highly recommend this to families in their homes on DVD.
