Defining Family Entertainment...perhaps re-defining.
8 February 2008 | by jfranklinbradleySee all my reviews

All Roads Lead Home – Review By: J. Franklin Bradley, LBK Holdings, Inc.

True "family entertainment" is far more than just something everyone in the family can watch together. If done correctly, "family entertainment" is characters and situations that can be felt and understood by all generations…nicely blended into a compelling bit of storytelling that captures the imagination of it's audiences.

Just such a movie is "All Roads Lead Home", a little film with a really big payoff for its audiences. Each character adds a piece to the mosaic, from a cantankerous grandfather to his rebellious granddaughter, her father and his struggles with parenting, guilt and trying to move on with his life. Each has a differing view of their shared tragedy, yet no resolution can be found until they fight off the demons of mistrust, misunderstanding, stubbornness and resentment. Together, these characters form a wonderfully complicated mosaic, never fully revealed until the last piece is put into place.

Audiences of all ages will be mesmerized by this film. For it is a journey through life's complications, with every age and viewpoint represented. There truly is something for everyone in "All Roads Lead Home". And that "something" is a heart-warming story that proves that "family entertainment" really can reach out and hold an audience from the first to the last word of the script. Its storytelling at it's best. And it shouldn't be missed.
