A Letter to Dad, DVD
AGONIZINGLY SLOW MOVING MOVIE.
The best part of this movie was the incerpts from the past--both my husband and I enjoyed that and thought if they would have just made a movie about what all happened in the past then bring it all to present day at the end--would have been the best. As it is right now--it is a agonizingly SLOW. My husband hated all the music --i understand they used that instead of conversation. I ended up fast forwarding some of the scenes of just music--it was just to drawn out and slow. Also--this movie held very little meaning for me. I personally only see a person getting something from this movie --if --thy come from a split home(divorce) and /or drinking of a parent. Since there was not any of that in my family -it was hard for me to "get into" the movie.
Also the main character (dan) kind of seems like a "wuss" to me. My husband had to agree slightly on that point--he could not see a grown man puking and cryng like that--made him sissy-fied.
I was going to give this a 3 star but my opinion is not the same as yours. There was some good things about this movie --if you are the right person.
There is no sex or cursing in this movie. You do see the use of alcohol but --it is shown in a negative manner and in no way promotes the use of it.

Movie had potential but continuity was sadly lacking (things were just kind of thrown at you and really didn't drawn one into the story)....long drawn out scenes which didn't say or teach much. Any teaching was just kind of thrown out there with no impact. One possible spiritual message was perhaps forgiveness but it was extremely weak. Recommend don't waste your time on this one.

Very moving story about how the choices we make effect those around us. The importance of forgiveness and being true to yourself. We really enjoyed it.

Good introspective movie
It has a good message. I just didn't connect with it.
