Happy Father's Day to people whose fathers are no longer with us. For many of us who miss our fathers on this day, it can be extremely difficult to even think of Father's Day at all. Even if a father wasn't "Father of the Year" material, Father's Day can be filled with wishes of if only.
Have you seen the movie Touching Home starring 4 time Oscar nominee Ed Harris?
|Touching Home - 2010's Most Heartfelt Movie|
The book Either You're In or You're In the Way chronicles the journey of the twin brothers who made the film, Touching Home in tribute to their alcoholic father who died alone in a jail cell.
Here is the description from Amazon:
When identical twin brothers Logan and Noah Miller's homeless father died alone in a jail cell, they vowed, come hell or high water, that their film, Touching Home, would be made as a dedication to their love for him.
Either You're in or You're in the Way is the amazing story of how -- without a dime to their name nor a single meaningful contact in Hollywood -- they managed to write, produce, direct, and act in a feature film alongside four-time Academy Award nominated actor Ed Harris and fellow nominees Brad Dourif and Robert Forster. Either You're in or You're in the Way is a mordern-day Horatio Alger on steroids -- a fast-paced thrill ride of heartbreak and redemption that will both captivate and inspire.
