Hello there.

I'm looking for a movie where a son/daughter and father meet for the first time after an extended amount of time apart. To be more specific, a movie where the father abandoned his son/daughter and they meet.

Any help would be great. I am newly graduate from a media course and am thinking about making a short film about the same topic. Just want to get a little research done first.

Thanks :)

Well I am not sure if this counts but in How I Met Your Mother, Barney met his dad finally in season 6. As for movies, I'll try to think of one

No problem. I hope that helped.

2012 and War of the Worlds are sort of like that. They weren't really apart for long, but a divorce kept them apart. 2012 would probably be better as they all end up together in the end

Darn, beat me to it!
“Reason is itself a matter of faith. It is an act of faith to assert that our thoughts have any relation to reality at all.” - G.K. Chesterton

“Unbelief is as much of a choice as belief is. What makes it in many ways more appealing is that whereas to believe in something requires some measure of understanding and effort, not to believe doesn't require much of anything at all.” - Frederick Buechner

“All human nature vigorously resists grace because grace changes us and the change is painful.” - Flannery O'Connor


“My argument against God was that the universe seemed so cruel and unjust. But how had I got this idea of just and unjust? A man does not call a line crooked unless he has some idea of a straight line. What was I comparing this universe with when I called it unjust?” - C.S. Lewis

Depends on the circumstances you are looking for. I saw this movie a while ago, and it has an interesting take:

Posted Image

There are 4 generations involved. There is a widowed father and his young son, living with the boy's great-grandfather (Michael Caine). Then the grandfather of the child (Christopher Walken) suddenly shows up, after being gone for years. So you get both the interaction of an elderly father with his estranged son, a new father with his own estranged father, and a young boy meeting his grandfather for the very first time.

The movie leads up to why Walken left in the first place. It's a bit slow of a movie at times, but has a good story, and some interesting scenes.

Gardens of the Night.  A girl is abducted and lives with her abductor, Tom Arnold, for many years.  Eventually she gets back to her parents.  A very sad movie but an interesting story about how she can't fit back into her old life.  While she was kidnapped she believed her parents had abandoned her.

I like how the OP's "research" is putting up a question on CDC, then sitting back and letting everyone else provide the "research." CDC is the new Wikipedia.

What about, Igby Goes Down. Doesn't meat his father for the first time but finds out who his father is.

Also Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. There's an episode where Will meets his father, who quickly abandons him again.

If you are looking for a pretty emotional one, the Little Princess has a good one after the girls dad comes back from the war. Outside in the pouring rain as the bad guys are trying to take her away.... about as classic as you get.

No videos in sig please.

“When facism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.”-Sinclair Lewis

A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."-Albert Einstein
