Movie Reviews

A father's love and sacrifice for his son
Ardeal | Atlanta, GA United States | 06/23/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great 6-part mini series. It made a powerful impact on me when I first watched it on TV in the 80-s. It's very refreshing to see a father who decides that his great investment in life is his son. Sorrell Sr. had a normal family when he went to war (WW1) yet upon his return, problems started to appear, some due to him being wounded. His wife left him and their son, and the father had to take any job so he can care for the well-being of his son. The movie begins with Sorrell finding out that a person who was supposed to offer him a job just died. It continues with his struggles and sometimes inhumane treatment by others that would make any viewer more thankful for what they have and what they don't have to go through. The son grows up and becomes a successful doctor.
The DVD quality is not exactly the greatest - it looks more like a VHS. Full screen - since this is a made-for-TV series."
