Good film
22 September 2019 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

This is without any doubt an excellent character study about a father son relationship, so typical for a TV feature, destined to home audiences, families, which many folks could recognize themselves. Excellent David Soul's performance too, of course, very convincing as the daddy in charge of his son, despite his divorce.
