A Fathers Son

Dove Rating
Dove "Family-Approved"
Recommended for ages 12 and over

Video Release: 3/11/2014

Reviewer:

Synopsis:
Michael Landon, star of Bonanza and Little House on the Prairie, was adored by millions. But none more than his son, Michael, who knew him as the same loving and caring father people had been watching on television for years. Then came the day that changed his life, and his family's life... forever. Michael Landon Jr. directs an intimate portrayal of divorce and the break-up of the family, and the healing of wounds that only God can provide. Stars John Schneider, Cheryl Ladd, Sarah Lancaster, and Joel Berti.

Dove Worldview:
This is the story of Michael Landon, according to his son, Michael Landon Jr. A very human and not so angelic portrait is revealed in the movie. The pain of Michael Landon's son, Michael Landon Jr., is a big part of the story. The son idolized the father when the son was a boy but when Michael has an affair and leaves his children behind the son deals with the turmoil of the experience. Michael Landon Sr.'s experiences are revealed too, such as when his mother hung up his dirty bed sheets outside the window of the house as he was a bed wetter and how it embarrassed him.

Although Michael's affairs are revealed they are done so to reveal how much pain it caused the children and the movie makes the point that children of divorce suffer a lot. Although there are sophisticated themes in the film it is a movie worth watching and we are awarding it our Dove Seal for ages twelve plus. This one shows that pain can be a hard thing to get past, but that it can be done.
