Audience Reviews for In His Father's Shoes

It?s a well meaning and rather sweet story. It has a unique approach to it?s message. The performances make up for the lack of thought put into the period detail. In general, it?s a fine and moving film.

James Higgins

A new view on time travel and full body transplantation. This is so cool! It's also very touching.
