James Caan directed and stars in this true story of a man searching for his missing children.
I'm not sure I ever knew that James Caan directed a film, but he did and it's "Hide in Plain Sight." The story is about a father, Caan, who's ex-wife, Jill Eikenberry, goes into the witness protection program and takes her children with her. Caan then spends the rest of the film trying to find his children. That set-up has potential, but the film is so slow moving that it never really grabbed me, although I will give Caan and Eikenberry credit for giving sincere performances. Kenneth McMillan and Danny Aiello also appear.
Interesting story, but, it had this "made-for-tv" kind of feel.
I never heard of Hide In Plain Sight until I recorded it off the free channel.After watching it, I looked it up on imdb & read it flopped at the box office.For it being such a good movie I can't believe it.It was a very good movie but way underated.Thomas went through alot of crap to see his kids again.If the scene where he finally finds them doesn't warm your heart, make you happy or touch you in some sort of way then you have no feelings
