Thursday Movie Picks - All in the Family Edition: Father-Son Relationships
This weeks Thursday Picks theme is All in the Family Edition: Father-Son Relationship. A tough theme which had me racking my brains but after some thought here are my top 3 -
Big Fish follows the story of a son whose father is dying and he wants to learn as much about his dad as possible. Using the stories he has heard from his father over many years, he goes about recreating his dad's life and learns a lot more about his dad's triumphs and failures.
Ok Finding Nemo probably isn't one of the first films to spring to mind for this genre being about fish but still they are father and son. Nemo is captured from his home in the Great Barrier Reef and is taken to Sydney to be a little girls pet. His dad with the help of some outrageous characters goes on an epic adventure to rescue his son.
Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade
When Dr. Henry Jones Sr. suddenly goes missing while pursuing the Holy Grail, eminent archaeologist Indiana Jones must follow in his father's footsteps and stop the Nazis.
