Movie: Where son/daughter meets father for first time?
Posted 09 July 2012 - 11:05 AM
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.

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

“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

Two kids who were born from artificial insemination to a lesbian couple meet their father and try to incorporate him into their family.

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.

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

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

This is however my own story. If you want to make the movie I'm still writing the screen play. We can talk when it's ready.
