Chronicle of Family and Adoption
9 May 2017 | by betty-68937See all my reviews

The story of adoption is true for all of us whether we know someone who is adopted, are adopted ourselves, have blended families, or have taken a child in foster care. It's not just the "someone else"; it is our story and has been for millennia. I guess that is why Three Days in August touches my heart and speaks to us all. We all want to belong and know how and where we fit in. It sounds easy: take a baby, raise her with love, and everything will be perfect. Ahh, but there is more, of course. This film beautifully touches on the complexity of relationships and Family (with a capital F). We are Family in all the different forms and embodiments, and as Family we can't help but touch many other people. Beautifully presented and well acted with Barry Bostwick, Mariette Hartley, and Meg Foster. Ms. Foster was a force! Mollie Milligan, as the lead character, Shannon, was excellent. Dallas director Johnathan Brownlee did a fantastic job, and the Texas location couldn't have been more perfect.
