Movie Reviews

Well done story on the special bond between sons and fathers
06/19/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a nicely done story on the powerful bond between fathers and sons. After his father dies, young Clay fulfills his father's deathbed wish to heal family wounds. With the aid of magical wingtip shoes, a gift to his father from a strange gypsy, Clay literally steps into his father's shoes and visits his dad's childhood. Clay finds a sustaining connection with his father after his death, and reconnects other members of his extended family. An excellent film for children who have lost a loved one. Clay's mother is warmly supportive of her son's need to come to terms with the death in his own way."
Fine Family Film with Great Performances
Reginald D. Garrard | Camilla, GA USA | 10/09/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Both Louis Gossett, Jr. and Robert R'ichard are very good in their respective roles. R'ichard, who won an Emmy for his performance, exhibits a wide range of emotions, befitting his character's coming to terms with the death of his father and the realization that he is the "carbon copy" of his father. This is one well-made film that is great for the entire family and should promote discussion and understanding about the importance of all members of the familial unit."
