All Roads Lead HomeDirector: Dennis Fallon,
Inspired by a true story, director Dennis Fallon's emotional family drama tells the tale of a family attempting to cope with a tragic loss, and a young girl who finds the strength in the last place she ever expected. Twelve year old Belle (Vivien Cardone) has just lost her mother in a horrible auto accident, and she places the blame for that loss squarely on the shoulders of her grieving father Cody (Jason London). Unable to deal with his daughter's newfound rebellious streak and contend with his own sorrow at the same time, Cody sends Belle away to live with her grandfather Hock (Peter Coyote), a genuine cowboy who lives by a strong code of ethics. But Hock is unable to look at Belle without thinking about his deceased daughter, a sad fact that only deepens the young girl's intense feelings of alienation. Just as Belle begins to feel as if there's no one in the world with whom to share her sadness, along comes a loyal pup named Atticus that helps her to focus on the positive things in life. Perhaps with a little help from a kindly veterinarian, an empathetic farm manager, and a good-humored motel owner, this family will finally find the strength needed to move past their pain while building a joyous new life together. Patton Oswalt co-stars in a drama also featuring the final onscreen appearance of legendary actor Peter Boyle.

Nice Family Movie
If you like family films that aren't too boring for grown ups and make kids think, this is one for you. It has a better plot than the normal goofy kids fare. It is great for kids especially girls and everyone who loves animals. It is hard to find a movie anymore that doesn't have any sex or violence but is still well made. Its a nice little film with a positive message (I won't give it away). If you like Dreamer or Win Dixie you'll like this one.
While Vivienne Cardone was excellent in this movie, the overall story and movie itself was just nearly impossible to get through. I understand that it was supposed to be inspirational, but this movie severely lacked that. It was just traumatic incident after traumatic incident. I would not recommend it for anyone. It's draining, and not at all in a good or entertaining way. This movie is more All Roads Lead to Constant Depression than All Roads Lead Home.
The description 'family film' gets tossed around a lot. I have found that either these so called family movies are either A) animated or B) still contain language, themes, etc that aren't exactly family friendly.
All Roads Lead Home is different. It is a wonderful film that manages to be sad, happy, funny, touching, and uplifting all at once. I won't go into to too many details as I don't want to ruin the story, but the message is simple, every living thing deserves a chance.
The movie also deals with death and dying which in my opinion is a positive. It shows that death is a part of life, it isnt glossed over but it also is shown morbidly or overly traumatic.
All in all it is a great film that I highly recommend...it will make you cry, make you laugh, make you think and most importantly if you watch it with children, make you talk. There are a ton of discussion topics that are dealt with in a positive way and I think that is both important and not something we see a lot of in 'family films.'
See this movie.
