Movie Info

In Misunderstood, Henry Thomas ("Elliot" in E.T.) co-stars with Gene Hackman as a son-and-father duo who through no fault of their own fail to communicate their mutual affection. Ned (Hackman) is a shipping magnate living with his family in a villa in Tunisia when he suffers through the death of his wife Lilly (Susan Anspach). It is an agony for him to tell his older son Andrew (Thomas) that his mother has died, and from that moment on, he is so overcome by his own grief -- drowning it in work

Audience Reviews for Misunderstood

This movie was one of the touching movies I have seen. Stars Gene Hackman and Henry Thomas. Just a simple story of a Father trying to raise his two sons after the death of the mother. Very sad and depressing, but also a wonderful story of a family trying to cope with death.
