In “The Way Home,” a DVD published by Lionsgate, a father is tasked to watch his two-year-old son while packing the van for family vacation. He becomes distracted and returns to find his son missing. He and his wife frantically search the area for sign of their son. As they are tested by this difficult circumstance an outstanding amount of support is shown by their community.
This is definitely an acceptable movie for family night. However, the plot seems more promising of a good story than it is. I watched it with my sister and we both felt the same way; the movie was good but it wasn’t great. I was actually shocked to find out that the movie was a true story, simply because the writing didn’t seem very realistic. Some of the characters reactions and verbal responses seemed like they were just “the right things” to say if you’re a Christian in this circumstance rather than “the real things” you do and say as a Christian who is walking with God through a difficult situation. I really wish I could say this movie was better; I was looking so forward to watching it. While it would not be a waste of your time to watch it, I wouldn’t put it at the top of your list.
