This is more of a reccomendation more than a review. First of all, this is one of the most misrated films I've seen. Okay, it was released in 1969 and it has a "G" rating. Should have been "PG" because the first half of the film has some serious subject matter. The first half is very serious while the last half is more of comedy. It stars Alan Arkin as a troubled single Puertorican father who fears about his two son's futures. He decides to put them in a boat and let them find a better life with a new family when they hit the shore. But he dosen't feel like he's doing the right thing. The movie is pretty intriguing. I only saw bits of it. That is why I don't have a rating for it but I did catch the main plot. Check it out but you will loathe the ending.
