Prodigal Sons – Movie Review
Filmmaker Kimberly Reed dives headfirst into an unflinching portrait of her family that is absolutely engrossing and marks her coming-out, in more ways than one.
Pick of the Week!
Prodigal Sons is a documentary that will blow your socks off. I don’t want to tell you too much about it because I want it to unfold for you the same way it unfolded with me. It starts with a female voice over talking about the big sky of Montana and her family. She explains her feeling that she was conceived on the day her mother brought an adopted child home and how they grew up. The movie takes you from childhood to family reunion to a high school reunion and much has changed during that time. I don’t want to tell you anymore about this but you’re going to love this documentary. I think anyone that actually tells you what happens should be tarred and feathered and should have to watch Mickey Mouse cartoons instead of documentaries, because this is a really good documentary that you shouldn’t miss, but I’m not going to tell you why. I want you to be as surprised and charmed as I was. Five stars!
