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.
